Midtown Educational Foundation
Midtown Educational Foundation, through its Midtown Center for boys and Metro Achievement Center for girls, helps close the achievement gap for Chicago’s urban youth ages eight through eighteen.
How do we accomplish this? MEF integrates academics, virtues, and exposure to the world of opportunity beyond the classroom for each child it serves. Midtown and Metro programs engage parents and adult mentors in developing students of strong character with a desire for academic excellence, a college education, and service to others.
