Founded in 1924, Youth Guidance is a local organization that specializes in social-emotional learning, counseling and educational supports in Chicago area schools. Youth Guidance administers school-based programs that enable youth to overcome life obstacles and improve their academic performance. This award provides general operating support to fund the agency's expansion of the nationally recognized Becoming A Man (BAM) and Working on Womanhood (WOW) school-based counseling programs. BAM and WOW work to ensure that youth are successful socially, emotionally and academically and that they are prepared for life after high school.

2013 • 1 year • Community & Economic Development

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.
