On Tuesdays during the football season and through a partnership with Youth Guidance, Chicago Bears players will visit Chicago Public Schools to speak to, motivate, and interact with students who are part of the B.A.M (Becoming a Man) and W.O.W. (Working on Womanhood) programs. In 2013, 22 Bears players are scheduled to visit 21 schools in support of the Bears School Outreach program.

W.O.W. is a school-based counseling, mentoring, character development and educational enrichment program that promotes social, emotional and behavioral competencies in at-risk female youth. The curriculum addresses five core values: self-awareness, emotional intelligence, healthy relationships, visionary goal-setting and leadership.
