Charitable Subsidizing Policy
The entire purpose of The Metro Mentorship Initiative is to serve the youth of the Greater Chicago Area by providing mentoring opportunities through athletics and other programs. While we do charge fees to our participants to help subsidize costs, by no means should these become a barrier for any potential or current participant. The organization will strive to serve all willing participants in its programs whether they can pay a fee or not. Further, The Metro Mentorship Initiative will continue to keep fees as low as possible by partnering with other community organizations, developing our volunteer base, and fundraising .
If a participant is not able to pay the full fee our policy is that we will work with the participant and his or her family to find an acceptable payment plan, reduced, or waived fee depending on that participates situation and needs. This policy is to be implemented for all current and potential participants and will be available to any participant that requests it.
