YMEN - Saturday University

Missions & Outreach


YMEN (Young Men's Educational Network) provides resources and youth programming, including academic support, leadership development activities and community service opportunities to underprivileged young men and women in the North Lawndale community of Chicago. 

Knox partners with YMEN to encourage and academically support the middle school and high school youth of YMEN through a tutoring and mentoring program held every Saturday morning throughout the school year called Saturday University.  In addition, Knox partners with the YMEN middle and high school youth three Sundays during the summer - inviting them to attend church, share a meal and participate in large group games.

Mission Highlight

Knox Team Captains are very happy to let you know that last month 19 Knox walkers raised $3806 by participating in the 40th Naperville Area CROP Hunger Walk. Many thanks to all the walkers and their sponsors for raising these funds to support Around the Block and Around the World programs. Moreover, participants in the local CROP Hunger Walk had the opportunity to pack Easy Meals for the clients of Loaves and Fishes. The goal of packing 600 Easy Meals was accomplished!!
