At Kelvyn Park we seek to change the existing narrative about community schools within Chicago. We could easily have chosen to brand ourselves as a place that's selective of students, families, partners, and the like. Instead we see the value and resources within this great community. Our school is an anchor for Kelvyn Park-Hermosa students and residents.
Partners collaborate with us to identify resources and provide their time and talent to support our continuous pursuit of the school’s mission and vision. Our partners always have what’s best for students at the forefront of their minds and hearts.
“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”

Volunteers commit to enhancing the learning environment of the school community whether it is directly with students, families, staff, or other community members. Our volunteers set their own time aside for the betterment of KPH. Some examples include hosting parent and community events, being a cafeteria or hallway monitor, helping translate for other families, or conducting after school enrichment activities but the list for examples are endless. We will always need individuals who are willing to sacrifice their time to enrich the lives of the students at KPH.
“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.”
