Midtown Educational Foundation is dedicated to closing the achievement gap for Chicago's urban youth ages 8 to 18. Its Metro Achievement Center for girls and Midtown Center for boys serve more than 1,000 at-risk children from low-income families through after-school and summertime enrichment programs that combine academics with virtues and individual attention with parental engagement. For the past 15 consecutive years, every high school senior participating in its college orientation program has earned a diploma and enrolled in college. Ninety-one percent of its alumni have either already graduated from college or are still enrolled.
