Loyola Students Contribute to New Life Volunteering Society in Chicago

September 25, 2013

Loyola University student Daniel Maddalozzo is currently completing graduate courses in anthropology and documentary filmmaking. During summers Daniel Maddalozzo tutors grade-school students from underserved communities in his hometown of Chicago through the New Life Volunteering Society.

The New Life Volunteering Society (NLVS) is a nonprofit service organization started in 1999 by students at the University of Illinois-Chicago to “alleviate the struggles of under-represented individuals” through medical and educational assistance and social services.

Today, in collaboration with Loyola University and the Chicago Youth Program, collegiate volunteers at NLVS are making a difference in the lives of young Chicago students who are identified as at-risk. While there are many short- and long-term service projects underway, NLVS volunteers tutor K-12 students every week of the year.

Additionally, the organization’s Health Education Clinic, which is staffed by student volunteers, is open to the public on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Overseen by attending physicians and clinic coordinators, students take patient histories and perform physical examinations.
