ONE on ONE Mentoring
Helps our students feel supported and ready for success
The reduced economic power of a household headed by a single teen parent not only limits the ability to sustain basic needs, but it also hinders the ability to pursue further education; especially if support systems are weak or absent. To enhance the family structure and fill the gap of underprivileged and low-income children, Changing Life Education Initiative, Inc. has provided life-coaches who mentor youth and track their success rates in school, after-school and community involvement. Through partnerships with local high schools, colleges, universities, businesses, Greek letter organizations and other social clubs, our organization has increased our mentor base; and we have a Life Coach who will be assigned to every one of our students enrolled in our program. Life Coaches (Mentors) are responsible for tutoring, advising and counseling students toward successful and positive behavior, higher academic grades, and future career goals. Mentors are committed for a minimum of one year and are instructed to have contact with students bi-weekly if students are between the ages of 6-13, and monthly if students are between the ages of 14-18. Students served by this program are ages: 6-26 and can live anywhere in the Chicago metro area.
We are currently recruiting youth and mentors for the fall program, our life coaches (mentors) must complete 20 hours of training and sign an agreement to mentor their assigned student for 1 year. If you are interested in participation in our 2014-15 Mentoring Program contact us below:
