Founded in 1891, Northwestern Settlement has nurtured, educated, and inspired children and families in need in Chicago. Focusing on changing lives through education, social services, and the arts, Northwestern Settlement’s programs are fully integrated to meet the complex needs of our neighbors.
Project YES!, the agency’s national service program, connects caring adults with youth in and around West Town. The program’s AmeriCorps Members serve the community through mentorship, educational, service, artistic, and recreational activities. The goal of the program is to support students’ academic achievements, provide alternatives to destructive behaviors, and foster an ethic of service in the entire community.
We’re thrilled to begin working with the phenomenal people behind Project YES!
