Summary: Computer server for the YMEN organization of North Lawndale, Chicago

YMEN of Chicago, (http://ymenchicago.com/) an organization that is designed to revitalize and create sustainable leadership in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. This is being accomplished through intense mentoring of area youth. To assist with this goal, YMEN is in need of a computer server to connect its individual computers in its educational learning facility.

YMEN has succeeded over its 23 year history in achieving an 88% high school graduation rate for its students versus a 35% rate for the neighborhood; and a 35% college graduation rate versus 3% for the neighborhood.

Education success is a primary goal of the YMEN organization. It is is also dedicated to its mission of not only educating the young people of the neighborhood, but also to keeping them int the neighborhood to serve as the future leaders of the area.

Hinsdale Rotary is active with YMEN and asks that the $1,840 District Grant Allocation for 2019-2020 be dedicated to this project. In discussion with Gov. Pedro Cevallos-Candau, we plan to partner with Chicago Rotary One on this project.
