Make a Positive Impact on the Next Generation

Bridge Communities is in need of CERTIFIED TEACHERS that are looking for a challenge and the opportunity to help children of homeless families now living in transitional housing.

All the children in our program have experienced homelessness and many may have experienced domestic violence or attended many different schools.  Most have not had the benefit of a stable home to motivate them to achieve in school.

Bridge's goal is to help the children in our program achieve academic success and to ensure that the parents understand the educational process and support the children in their efforts to achieve in school.

Tutoring is an opportunity for you to use your teaching expertise in a one-to-one setting helping high-risk students.

Students meet with their tutors once or twice each week, for one hour each session. Tutoring typically takes place in one of our three Learning Resource Centers located in Glendale Heights, Naperville and Westmont or one of our other Tutor Centers in Glen Ellyn, Addison and Woodridge.
