 HEAR PROVIDES FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AND A COLLEGE SUCCESS PROGRAM TO LOW-INCOME CHICAGOLAND HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS WHO DEMONSTRATE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE, COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY, AND PERSONAL INTEGRITY IN THEIR PURSUIT OF A COLLEGE EDUCATION.

 

With deep sadness, but also gratitude for a beautiful life well lived, we share the news of the passing of our beloved Director Emeritus James “Jim” Weiss.

Jim was a kind, wise, and loving man of profound faith and active goodwill. His legacy lives on, and will continue to spread, in young scholars all over the country. There would be no HEAR Family without him.

Our deepest sympathy goes to Jim’s family. May his memory be a blessing.

HEAR Mentoring

Mentoring is an essential part of our program. HEAR pairs every new Scholar with an adult mentor.

They serve as guides to our under-resourced and often first-generation scholars throughout their college careers.

 

Mentoring is well-documented as being key to ensure college perseverance and completion. Become a mentor for one of our future scholars and feel a sense of satisfaction knowing you personally made a difference in someone’s life. If you, or anyone you know, are interested in learning more about becoming a mentor, please contact us at info@hearfoundation.org.
