Parent and community volunteers are welcome at The Hope Institute Learning Academy. From making copies to helping with classroom libraries to listening to a child read, there are many opportunities for individuals who wish to generously donate their time to HILA.

Individuals wishing to volunteer at HILA must complete a CPS Volunteer Application, available for download below or in the school office. The application must be completed entirely and submitted to the Principal. CPS will then conduct a background check and approve or deny the application. Volunteers who will be in the building more than five hours per week must also submit a proof of freedom from tuberculosis.

To learn more about available volunteer opportunities please contact the school office at (773) 534-7405.
