2012-13 Mentoring Kicks-Off!!

On Saturday, September 22nd at Chicago State, our South Side program had its inaugural session.  Under the leadership of Andre Edmonds, it was great to see parent, mentor and mentee faces, new and old, learning about our new curriculum, focusing more this year on science, technology, engineering, and math, in addition to the normal college readiness, financial literacy and life skills topic to which they been accustomed.  We will be implementing a new student blog, as well as our initiatives geared to the demonstration of leadership, critical to their success as they move through high school and onto their secondary education.

Of course, we also used it as an opportunity to promote our 10th Annual College Scholarship Fair, 9AM Saturday, October 13th at UIC.

Our West Side program will start this Saturday, September 29th, at the Major Adams Center, 125 N. Hoyne (10AM-12PM).

Our West Suburban program re-launch begins on Saturday, October 20th at Quad County Urban League in Aurora, 1685 N. Farnsworth (10AM-12PM).

Finally, our Michele Clark Magnet School program will begin (tentatively) on Tuesday, October 9th (3:00PM-5:00PM).
