Youth Guidance serves more than 8,000 students in Chicago’s schools. More than 95% of our students are African-American and Hispanic/Latino. Most reside in low income communities.
Here are some of their stories.
Violence and persistent poverty are major obstacles for many Chicago youth. For every young person our agency touches, there are so many others who need dedicated support. We hope that as you explore our website, you will also consider the many ways that you can join us and support our mission. Attend an event, offer a gift or volunteer. All support is welcome and appreciated.
Together, we can give more young men and women in Chicago a chance at the life and future they hope for and deserve.
