Collaboration Goals. Helping Volunteer-Based Tutor/Mentor Programs Grow. by Daniel F. Bassill
The Black Star Project is committed to improving the quality of life in Black and Latino communities of Chicago and nationwide by eliminating the racial academic achievement gap. Our mission is to provide educational services that help pre-school through college students succeed academically and become knowledgeable and productive citizens with the support of their parents, families, schools and communities.
Scholars are matched with an adult mentor who serves as friend, tutor and advisor as the student adjusts to the rigorous environment of a college preparatory school. Mentors are role models who take a special interest in the academic success and personal growth of Scholars. Mentors are selected from a culturally and socially diverse donor and volunteer base. Mentors and scholars meet one-on-one and attend Foundation-sponsored activities and events throughout the year.
This volunteer mentoring program matches adults with at-risk children to serve as role models, friends and confidants. Mentors in this program are all ages and from all walks of life but are united by their concern for Chicago youth.
