Horizons for Youth is a community committed to helping children recognize and achieve their full potential. In partnership with dedicated families, we provide the highly individualized, holistic support students need to succeed in high school, college, and the rest of their lives. The 100% college enrollment rate and 90% college persistence rate of our high school program alumni demonstrate the effectiveness and life-changing impact of our programming for children from low-resource neighborhoods in Chicago.
Funds raised during the Challenge will help provide comprehensive services to our 225 K-12 students, enabling them to become the first in their families to graduate college.
Our current support offerings include:
- need-based scholarships
- one-on-one mentoring
- individualized tutoring
- summer academic program
- high school preparation
- college preparation
- enrichment outings
We are the only organization in Chicago that provides a comprehensive suite of wraparound services and tuition scholarships for children at both the elementary and high school levels. Our unique combination of long-term services ensures that our students have the resources they need to be the first in their families to attend and graduate from college.
