horizons for youth
In 1990, Horizons for Youth began with five children as an elementary-only scholarship and mentoring organization. Since then, Horizons for Youth has evolved over time in order to continue to meet their students' emerging needs. At first, student support was assured for two years, then through 8th grade, then eventually through high school, and now, through college.
Today, 29 years later, Horizons for Youth is Chicago's first and only organization providing scholarship, mentoring and enrichment programs for children from kindergarten through high school, with continued academic and socio-emotional support through college.
