About 88 Wayz Youth Foundation:
88 Wayz Youth Organization was founded in April 2008 on the direction of Desmond Clark, NFL, Chicago Bears. Mr. Clark's desire of seeing young people receive opportunities they would otherwise not be afforded, led him to pursue a not for profit organization. In doing so, 88 Wayz Youth Organization will provide an array of services to youth in becoming productive youth within their respective communities.
TALKS Mentoring Program is an innovative, cognitive-behavioral approach to youth mentoring that focuses on leadership skill development through peer-to-peer and youth-adult interactions. TALKS implements a structured format by which adult mentors from the community serve as role models for children in the public schools.
