The Cities Project (https://www.thecitiesproject.org) is a non-profit, research-based mentorship program dedicated to supporting Chicago Public School students and their families. Through research, they want to understand how stressful life experiences affect youth—physically, mentally, and academically. Further, their mission is to provide students with community-oriented intervention programs to lessen the effects of stress. The program provides youth with a positive support system and the tools to manage everyday stressors.
