Facing the rising gang involvement in Chicago, coupled with a struggling public school system and a majority of the city's population at or below poverty level, we are striving to offer a healthy outlet to youth across the city who would otherwise not have access to such opportunities. By partnering the outlet of dance with Chicago - specific programming, the students will be better equipped to combat the challenges Chicago youth face.
Plan of Action
Offer weekly hip hop dance classes to Chicago's youth. Then, slowly introduce other programming through the dance classes, such as nutrition education, service learning, cultural education, and performance opportunities.
