Mentoring Chicago's Youth for Success

  • Union League Club 65 West Jackson Boulevard Chicago, IL, 60604 United States (map)

City-Wide Breakfast Panel

Across Chicago, many youth face conditions in their communities and within their families that pose obstacles to achieving academic, career and personal success. The intervention of a trusted adult mentor can provide young people with the support and guidance to overcome these obstacles, and Chicago is fortunate to have a number of quality mentoring programs that fill this crucial need.

Please join us for a breakfast discussion addressing this important issue, and how Chicago’s business and civic communities can and should be involved. Tickets are $25:

Featuring a panel discussion with:
Margie Morris, executive director, Illinois Mentoring Partnership
Glenn Wilke, executive director, Midtown Educational Foundation
Art Mollenhauer, CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago
Terry Hendrickson, President, ULC Boys & Girls Club Foundation
Maria Barrios, PepsiCo, Volunteer Mentor

Moderated by Laura Washington, columnist, Chicago Sun-Times
Remarks by Adolfo Hernandez, Deputy Director of the Mayor’s Office of Public Engagement
