We are grateful to those who joined us for our recent Heroes at Workevent, where we celebrated our Heroes and shared our story. If you did not have a chance to attend, you can still see the streamed event, and contribute toward our fundraising goal.
Due to COVID-19,Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth tutoring is taking place virtually. For the 2020-21 year, students and their tutors meet virtually, one evening a week through mid-May. We follow the Chicago Public Schools' calendar.
The mission of Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth (LLAH) is to channel the Chicago legal community’s resources to support mentoring and tutoring programs that help at-risk youth.
We fulfill this mission primarily through two programs. Lend-A-Hand Tutoring at the CBA provides free one-to-one tutoring to students from the Englewood community and, as of 2021, Providence Englewood Charter School (PECS) on the city’s south side.
LLAH also awards financial grants to one-to-one mentoring and tutoring programs in Cook County, Illinois. We also honor outstanding mentoring and tutoring programs each year with the Thomas A. Demetrio Award of Excellence.
