AIM High - You Can Help
As the facilitator of the program, Center for Companies That Care makes it easy for employers to participate. Companies That Care will prepare mentors to teach general work skills, interviewing skills, computer proficiency, resume writing, money management, college application preparation, presentation skills, assistance with research projects, and more. In addition, Companies That Care will work with mentors to help students select a college, search for financial aid and scholarships, and accompany them on a bus tour of Midwest colleges. Students will have the opportunity to leave their neighborhoods and intern at their mentors’ Chicago area location. They will also participate in the Companies That Care CAREDAYS community service project. Students will welcome their mentors for special events (Bring Your Mentor to School Day, etc.), and participate in group cultural and sporting events.
HOW YOU CAN HELP: SIGN UP TO BE A MENTOR, A SPONSOR, OR BOTH.
Each student needs a sponsoring organization and a mentoring organization. This can be the same organization or two different organizations. Sponsorship for one child is $5000 annually.
Companies may sponsor a student, mentor a student, or both.
- Sponsors and mentors each make a four year commitment
- Sponsors and mentors will be publicly recognized
- Sponsoring is $5000 per student annually
- Several employees at a company may mentor one student
- Mentoring is estimated to take about 45 hours per year per student, excluding the internship phase
