Logan Square Neighborhood Association
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
The Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA) Parent Tutor/Mentor program will place 32 reduced part-time tutors and mentors in 8 low-income Latino public schools in Chicago. Trained bilingual parents will serve as members tutoring at-risk students in grades 1-8 and mentoring in high school. As a result, student achievement and attendance rates will increase, schools will become more community-friendly and members will build capacity and commitment as tutors, mentors and community leaders.
