WHY VOLUNTEER WITH MPA
Make a difference in the life of a youth. Volunteer Today! Financial support is only one aspect of how you can enrich the lives of inner-city students and help them to achieve their dreams. Through volunteering with us you will give high school students the tools they need to become future entrepreneurs and gain business experience through our workshops and seminars. Through our creative learning platform that teaches entrepreneurship and financial literacy through gardening, filming, and other talents you will provide an enriching experience to our inner-city students. Our programs are a time for building relationships with the youth, mentoring them, having fun, and sharing your skills and resources that might ultimately change the direction of an at-risk teenager. Too often, inner city teens find themselves over the summer break with nothing to do. We need people like you to help us bring summer programs and summer jobs to the low income neighborhoods. By doing so we can possibly reduce crime, lower the high school dropout rate, and eliminate the growing number of senseless murders that take the lives of hundreds of Chicago children every year.
