Empowering Heroes

Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 6.03.46 PMThe Empowering Heroes Mentoring Program matches at-risk youth with thoughtful and accomplished mentors who provide individualized guidance and support. Our mentors offer social, emotional, and academic assistance for underserved Chicagoans ages 13-24. Program participants take part in productive activities that support non-violence, college and career readiness, mental health, and physical fitness. They attend one-on-one and group mentoring sessions addressing personal and community concerns. In addition, the youth enjoy safe and fun game nights, listen to informative and motivational guest speakers, benefit from counseling services provided by the Primo Center for Women and Children, and experience eye-opening field trips throughout the greater Chicago area.

For more information on the Empowering Heroes Mentoring Program, or to schedule an appointment to enroll your child, contact Tatino Williams, Mentor Coordinator, at 773-542-7317 or at twilliams@bbffamilyservices.org.
