Welcome to the University of Illinois REACT Program!

FALL 2021

Do you like working with children? Do you want to be a reason why chemistry is fun and interactive for children? And for all James Scholar students, do you want to earn honors credit (without having to write essays)? Then we are a perfect fit!

“This semester we are holding Zoom visits with 3rd, 4th, and high school classrooms in Champaign and Urbana. Volunteers will be assigned to visits throughout the semester, so keep an eye out for an email from us! Once assigned, you will be sent information about the visit, instructions for attending a training session over Zoom, and a pre-visit Google Form to complete before the training session. Honors students will be emailed additional instructions for assignments and requirements. 

Orientations for this semester have already been held. If you were unable to attend one of the orientation sessions, then please email thereactprogram@gmail.com if you would still like to volunteer with us!”

If you no longer plan to continue as a REACT volunteer throughout the duration of the semester, or have any schedule changes (add/drop course/work), please inform us by sending an email addressing any decision. (Note: If you are an honors student and plan to no longer continue, you will not earn credit.)
