Each year we receive over 800 essays from 6th, 7th and 8th grade students in Chicago answering the question of how violence has affected their lives. Volunteers are asked to donate just a bit of their time to help us read and score these wonderful essays. Essays are typically 2 – 3 pages long so it should take readers about 1 hour to read all 12.
