The pandemic revealed the inequities of inaccessibility to digital resources for black and brown communities. As the world shifted to a digital format, we discovered that many of the families we serve didn't have lacked computers and the technical skills needed to navigate the digital world.

 

We are doing our part through our partnership with PCs for people to close this digital divide. Each month we receive refurbished computers to distribute to low-income families in our community.  This initiative is not only helping the environment,  but it is putting a computer in the home of those with limited resources to ensure that they have access to the digital resources to compete and thrive in a global economy.

 

 

Empowering Girls in STEM

 

 

 

According to the National Science Foundation,  Black women make up only 2% of the STEM workforce, in spite of it being one of the largest growing fields.

 

The opportunity to have our young ladies attend Girls Build! Day was vital to dismantling the racial and gender biases that black girls face.

 

During this STEM Festival, our young ladies :

  • Received hands-on experience with more than 20 activity stations that were designed to cultivate a passion for math and science exploration.

  • Engaged  with female representatives from more than 15 museums and design firms.

 

Thank you Chicago Women Architects and Chicago Architecture Center for hosting Girls Build! Day in efforts of promoting gender equity in STEM.

 

Our young ladies had a ball!

 March's adventure led us to explore one of Chicago's historical gems on the south side of Chicago, the Pullman National Monument.

Pullman National Monument was declared a historic site by President Barack Obama on February 19, 2015. 

Pullman was known as the first planned industrial community in the United States.  Our youth got a chance to experience a replica of the Pullman sleeping car.

 

Our adventure climaxed with our youth receiving their official Junior Ranger patch and Ranger certificate.


There was so much to experience right here in our backyard.
