Youth Guidance creates and implements school-based programs that enable children in under-resourced communities to overcome obstacles, focus on their education and, ultimately, to succeed in school and in life.
What We Do
Youth Guidance is a leading school-based provider of outcomes-driven programs and capacity-building initiatives, serving more than 8,000 youth directly in FY14, and touching the lives of more than 11,000 youth, parents, teachers and community members.
Youth Guidance sees a bright and successful future for every at-risk, inner-city elementary and high school student in Chicago. We are present in Chicago Public Schools to facilitate an environment that meets students where they are and truly engages them in the learning process. Through careful guidance, we enable young men and women to realize their full potential and graduate with a meaningful plan for successfully managing life.
