The IFI TALKS Mentoring Program was developed in conjunction with TALKS Mentoring Ministry of Champaign, IL.  TALKS stands for Teaching A Little Knowledge Systematically and was founded by Dr. Harold Davis more than 20 years ago.  IFI recruits mentors to volunteer 1 hour per week to go into a school, during the school day, to mentor three young men.  Students range from 3rd grade to high school.  Dr. Davis like to emphasize that there are NO evenings, NO weekends, and NO financial commitment.  IFI is in the process of conducting a pilot program and early results from St. Malachy School are very encouraging.  If you're a school looking for mentors or an adult male looking to mentor, please send an email to and one of our volunteers will follow up with you.

The Illinois Fatherhood Initiative is a 501(c)3 charity.
