We are looking for mentors and volunteers who are passionate about making our world a better place and who understand that it starts with our youth.

Become a Mentor

Establish a relationship with a young person in the community and make a difference.

We want students to see all the opportunities the City of Chicago has to offer –

  • Cross-cultural. Offer YBF students a window into the professional working world.  “If you can see it, you can be it.” 

  • "Mentoring Lite". Our mentorship program is only 4 weeks long (and virtual!). Sessions can range from 30 to 60 minute via Zoom. 

  • Mentors must pass a screening interview and a background check.
