Lawrence Hall’s Project Work team has been hard at work actively recruiting for Project Mentor, our newest mentoring initiative connecting males in 8th, 9th, & 10th grade enrolled in school in the South Shore neighborhood, with mentors. Mentorship has been proven to be an effective strategy for increasing high school graduation rates and reducing violence. Research by the University of Chicago Crime Lab suggests the promise of this approach for improving the life outcomes at-risk young men. Lawrence Hall is currently seeking both participants for Project Mentor and Mentors who are eligible up to a $500 stipend. For more information about Project Mentor, contact Jevita Hamilton at:
