Your support will help fund:
- A safe summer program for Chicago’s low-income, academically average performing 4th-12th grade students. At Metro for girls (and our brother program Midtown for boys), kids find caring mentors, academic enrichment, character education classes and sports & field trips that provide countless fun summer memories. Metro offers girls an alternative to the streets that will guide them onto pathways of success.
- Afterschool tutoring and mentoring for academically-average youth from schools all across the city. Students are paired with a caring volunteer mentor and work with the same role model weekly. In addition to academic enrichment, students participate in Character Education classes where they learn about human virtues like respect, service, generosity, integrity and responsibility. Individual goal setting reinforces the lessons learned in the character classes. Extracurricular and fitness classes round out the holistic school year experience.
- A parenting program for MEF parents that offers classes and seminars to help them become leaders in their home and raise happy, healthy kids.
- Parents pay approximately 10% of what the programs cost. Generous sponsors make up the difference. Thank you in advance for your support!
