Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York
GCM Grosvenor employees provide New York children who face adversity one-to-one mentoring. The program focuses on career and college-readiness and professional development.
Helping the Next Generation of Leaders:
As volunteers and board members, GCM Grosvenor helps academically ambitious students from under-resourced communities in Chicago complete college and become the next generation of leaders.
On the Job: Year Up
Year Up identifies motivated young adults who may lack opportunities to enter the mainstream economy. The program helps prepare students for a career by providing six months of classroom learning and six months of on-the-job training. In 2018 GCM Grosvenor hired multiple Year Up interns.
