Policy Agenda Item 6

Encourage investment in programmatic, organizational, and fiscal capacity building for community-based organizations in high-need areas to deliver quality programs for youth and families.

  • Policymakers can make a commitment to fund programs and implement laws that will enable our young people to reach their full potential.
  • Parents can establish a regular time to check in with your children.
  • Everyone can consider becoming a tutor/mentor. Learn more about local opportunities through Tutor/Mentor Connection or the Illinois Mentoring Partnership
