MENTORING THROUGH 

TUTORING
 

Inspired by a program that started in the Englewood area of Chicago, Mentoring Through Tutoring is a support program for youth K through 12th grade, providing mentorship while helping with school work year round. 

 

THE CULTURAL 

ALLIANCE

 

A cultural exchange initiative that exposes youth to other cultures and what's happening around them. We organize outings, meetups, and cross-city and country projects.  The youth blog, and create media content around their experiences.

 Youth reach outside of their neighborhoods and discover the world around them.

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.

S.T.E.A.M

(Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math)

We provide our youth hands on STEAM experiences, and organize field trips to get them thinking of the growing STEAM fields. We draw support from companies such as Microsoft and others.

MEETUPS

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.
