Our Story

Horizons for Youth

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.
