P.E.N. Pals Male Mentoring Program

In April of 2012, IDM launched the P.E.N. (Positive Exposure Network) Pals Male Mentoring Program. The program mentors young men between the ages 13-18. Our target population is young men from the communities of Roseland, West Pullman, Altgeld Gardens, and other far south communities in Chicago with high rates of crime, gangs, and drugs.


Our purpose is to promote higher education, and prevent juvenile delinquency and truancy through the exposure of positive resources and activities. This is a three (3) month program however we seek to build life-long relationships.


P.E.N. Pals meets weekly via Zoom which is a virtual platform to ensure the safety and protection for all involved. Educational, cultural and recreational filed trips and outings are scheduled monthly by the mentoring team to promote exposure to new and exciting things.

D.O.V. Female Mentoring Program

In October of 2014, IDM launch the D.O.V. (Daughters Of Virtue) Female Mentoring Program to provide gender specific services to the female population. The target population is young women ages 13-18 from the communities of Roseland, West Pullman, Altgeld Gardens, and other far south communities in Chicago with high rates of crime, gangs, and drugs.


The program focuses on Conflict Resolution, Life Skills, Tutoring, and Computer Training. This program is also a three (3) month program but emphasizes the importance of life-long mentorship.
