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.
