Our Goal

Sprouting Leaders is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting continuous academic growth and personal development among youth in some of Chicago’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods. Through mentorship, education, and service we aspire to transform our youth to become leaders within their communities.

We are looking for dedicated mentors & volunteers all year long to help us continue our mission of helping establish meaningful relationships with our youth.

We help bridge the age gap by pairing (one-to-one or one-to-two) college leaders with students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade to build a peer-to-peer mentorship bond which develops throughout a college semester (10-12 weeks).

Providing proper support and positive influence during adolescence pivotal period – particularly when communities or guardians lack adequate resources – can equip youth with the compass to navigate these challenging years and guide their life journey.
