Youth Guidance sees a bright and successful
future for every at-risk, inner-city elementary
and high school student in Chicago.
Our mission is to create and implement school-based
programs that enable youth in need to overcome obstacles,
focus on their education and, ultimately, to succeed in
school and in life. Because we believe that this success is
not only possible but should be achieved and celebrated,
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.
Youth Guidance is a leading 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 14,000 youth, parents, teachers and community
