Helping Youth Plan for the Future

We share resources across our high school students to enrich their academic and extra-curricular endeavors and to help them plan for post-graduation options.

Our Teen Scholars attend 30+ High Schools across the Chicagoland area. We created 12 different practical life skill workshops that were offered on a quarterly basis. We have consolidated these workshops into a day-long conference at U of I-Chicago in May for our teens. Our support extends to shadow days, letters of recommendation, and connections to additional resources.​

"This program gave me skills I will take the rest of my life!"
