PARTNERING WITH OUR COMMUNITY TO GROW AND THRIVE
The Parkview Collective supports our local community in District 45. We mainly provide support
through educational programs for elementary students to receive mentorship, homework help,
and tutoring to help students successfully move on to the next grade level.
Interested in serving? Fill out our Volunteer Interest Form.
Schools We Support
We partner with schools in Villa Park to invest in children’s lives. We run an after school program to help students get up to grade levels, and mentoring and lunch bunch programs for other students where we put a caring adult in their lives once a week. If you have any questions or comments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
