    Alex and Letitia were tired of seeing only a specific portion of the teen population receiving access to inspiring workspaces and the mentors who are found there. They know the power of building confidence through one-on-one feedback, establishing supportive networks to provide opportunity, and giving early exposure to rich cross-sector experiences to develop a personalized plan for the future. Our program provides motivation to care about school, and connections to real life to help students understand purpose. MENTEE was built to ensure our immigrant, refugee, and low-income Chicago students could access this power!
