Recognizing that everyone has something to give – their time, values, knowledge, a skill – Mayor Emanuel is encouraging residents to step up and ensure all of our youth have the tools and support they need to succeed!
The Mayor has partnered with MENTOR Illinois on a 2-year Mentoring Challenge for 2,000 Chicagoans to serve as mentors for youth in need across our city.

Thanks to generous commitments from our corporate partners and individuals, we are excited to have 1,200 new mentors for Chicago's youth!
Encourage your employer to be a part of the mentoring movement too! For more information on corporate engagement, contact Margie Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mentors can make a difference for our city's youth through sustained, empowering relationships. Fill out this form to get started!
However, many programs have other models, including bi-monthly or monthly meetings, with a combination of in-person and remote (phone/email) interactions. Mentoring is not one-size-fits-all. Our goal is to connect you to a program that works with your preferences.
If you cannot commit to weekly mentoring, please note your availability in the space below.
