Youth Guidance

Youth Guidance sees a bright and successful future for every elementary and high school student in Chicago, regardless of their background or circumstances. Because we believe that success in school is not only possible but should be achieved and celebrated, we are present in schools to facilitate an environment that engages students in the learning process, and through careful guidance, enables them to realize their full potential and graduate with a meaningful post-secondary plan. Youth Guidance creates and implements school-based programs that enable at-risk children to overcome obstacles, focus on their education and, ultimately, to succeed in school and in life.
