    What We're Exploring: Cities, Information, and Governance

    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Youth Guidance is a Chicago-based organization that manages school-based programs to help middle-school youth overcome life obstacles and improve academic performance. The success among at-risk students of its signature program, Becoming a Man (BAM)--which strengthens socio-cognitive skills such as impulse control and conflict resolution that help reduce youth involvement in violence--has earned national recognition, including from the White House. As the program is being quickly expanded, Youth Guidance will retain a team of organizational development consultants to advise it on a range of growth strategies that will make it possible to reach more youths in Chicago schools, while maintaining program quality.
