OUR MISSION

Youth Guidance creates and implements school-based programs that enable children to overcome obstacles, focus on their education and, ultimately, to succeed in school and in life.

SPONSORSHIP

You can contribute towards one of Chicago’s leading providers of best-practice, evidence-based programming that works directly with children to help them make positive choices and remain on the right path towards life success.

WHY SUPPORT

Youth Guidance meets kids where they are and gives them access to the support and tools they need to thrive. With your generous support, our programs not only impact the individual youth, but help make their schools and communities safer and more successful.
