Project Connect is the Chicago Urban League’s mentoring program for high school juniors and seniors and first-year college students. Mentees receive secondary support from professional men and women who volunteer to spend up to 4 hours a month mentoring them in a healthy and productive manner. The program is designed for mentors to encourage and motivate youth participants, invest in their lives, and form long-lasting, impactful relationships.
Volunteer mentors must be 25 or older, be willing to commit to 1-3 years of mentorship, and complete our mentorship training and a background check.
