Since its founding in 1990, Horizons for Youth has been enabling children from low-resource areas of Chicago to become the first in their families to graduate from college. Through scholarships, a summer academic program, one-on-one mentoring, enrichment outings, tutoring, counseling, and high school and college preparation services, students gain access to the resources they need to graduate high school, continue on to college, and successfully enter the workforce.
Watch the Chicago Bears take on the rival Green Bay Packers on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at Zella Chicago. Have a beer, enjoy the game, and meet members of the Young Professional Board as well as others in the Horizons for Youth community.
I like everything about Horizons for Youth. I love hanging out with my mentor, going on outings, doing the summer program. There is nothing I don’t enjoy.
With the support I get from my mentor and tutor, I make better grades and have better work habits.
What I love the most about Horizons for Youth is knowing that they are with me every step of the way.
Horizons for Youth gave me lots more, and better, opportunities for choosing a high school. I am excited about starting my freshman year and meeting new friends.
After the service project at Feed My Starving Children, I thought “Wow, I just helped feed 1,000 children!”
