Coach for Success.

In 2016, Urban Initiatives launched the final program in our

continuum of programming. Coach for Success is a college and

career readiness program for high school students that pairs

participants with mentors from Chicago’s professional

community. Students join Urban Initiatives’ staff as Coaches

during summer camp, and they have the opportunity to “pay it

forward” by leading and mentoring younger Captains and

Players.

Coach for Success wouldn't be possible without the incredible dedication of

the mentors that support our students throughout their high school

journey. These mentors attend monthly meetings with their mentees,

provide guidance via text/phone call check ins, and help their mentees

make critical choices about their future.
