Currently virtual, "Mentoring Through
Tutoring" is a program that
started in 2012 in the Englewood
area of Chicago. We provide
after school "one on one"
and "group tutoring" to youth
(Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math)
We are currently providing virtual S.T.E.A.M. experiences to youth, locally and nationwide. We strategically utilize our partnerships to inspire them to think about the future and lead them toward fulfilling careers.
SHOW ME HOW
Through “Show Me HOW” we work with our youth to help them gain greater insight on who they are and their unique strengths. With a three-part workshop: interest and strength inventory, hands-on experiences, and interactive coaching groups, we help them zone in on career choices.
YBF organizes meetups to bring together community residents young and older to take part in conversations relevant to their community. We use these meetups to draw potential mentors and volunteers while gathering for positive uplifting exchanges.
