Young Scientists at Young

Help children discover the exciting world of science! Under the guidance of a skilled volunteer leader, you’ll work with third- and fourth-graders to complete hands-on activities and experiments that demonstrate scientific concepts. By doing so you’ll create a fun learning environment that supplements classroom activities. Each day will end with games, celebrating the children's work and dedication to the program. The school uses this program as a reward for good behavior, attendance, and attitude during the school week, so participants are always enthusiastic!

Partner: A part of the neighborhood since 1924, Ella Flagg Young Elementary School is a Chicago Public School serving students in pre-K through eighth grade. The school’s vision is to provide students with every opportunity to achieve their highest potential in every curricular area. Young School has been a Chicago Cares partner since 2010 for this project, one of multiple Chicago Cares programs at the school.
