Meet the Youth Program Coordinator

AD_120606-7000My name is Elle Mendiola and I have been working as the manager of the CHS Youth Program since 2009. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am very active in the Deaf community and I love sports. As the Youth Program manager, I want to give deaf and hard of hearing children the chance to develop their social, physical, intellectual and emotional skills.
In 1997, the CHS Youth Program received a Certificate of Recognition for Creativity and Innovative Thinking, in providing services to people with disabilities, from the Illinois Association of Rehabilitative Facilities.
In 2007, Deaf Illinois presented the CHS Youth Program with the Best After School Program Award.
Best of all, I strive to provide each child with a rewarding experience.
