Make It A Day On Not A Day Off
MLK Day of Service with Project YES!
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day of service, the AmeriCorps program Project YES! (Youth Education Services), a program of Northwestern Settlement, will be hosting a literacy fair for the children of the West Town neighborhood. Project YES! will be inviting school age children to participate in various activities to promote an interest in literacy.
PROJECT YES! connects caring adults with youth in and around the West Town community through mentorship, educational, service, artistic, and recreational activities in order to support their academic achievement, provide them with positive alternatives to destructive behaviors, and foster an ethic of service in the entire community.
What’s the content of YOUR character?
With your monetary donation, Project YES! will be able to raise the funds to supply the children of West Town with books and other supplies to aid their own personal pursuit of literacy. Any contributions, large or small, toward our efforts will be greatly appreciated.
*If you rather donate your time, books or reading supplies and you are in the Chicago area, please contact Ashley Mauter at: AMauter@nush.org
