The Neighborhood Schools Program, founded in 1976–77, just celebrated its 40th anniversary.
When the Neighborhood Schools Program started, it sent UChicago students to tutor at two local schools, Ray Elementary and Kenwood Academy. Now there are more than 400 students at 50 South Side public schools and community centers, working as tutors, as teaching assistants, and in administrative support.
