Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. We fulfill that mission by offering youth high-yield activities that are innovative and focus on one or more of our core program areas. Those core program areas include: Education, The Arts, Health and Wellness, Career Development, and Character and Leadership.
One of the goals of Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Educational core program is to increase interest and enrollment in postsecondary education. One way to increase the number of students from disadvantaged neighborhoods who enroll in postsecondary education is to expose them to college life. By providing students with a support system and equipping them with the tools needed to grasp the college enrolling process, a student will feel more competent in applying and attending.
Help the James R. Jordan Boys & Girls Club prepare our youth for post-secondary education by making a donation of $25, $50, or $100 to help send them on a college tour!
