Neighborhood Schools Program

NSP was founded in 1976 with approximately 15 students working as classroom assistants in a few schools. It now connects 400 University students—as tutors, teaching assistants, administrative interns, pre-school specialists, and technology coordinators—with 50 sites across nine neighborhoods on the South Side.
