Urban Initiatives believes that providing Chicago youth with opportunities for success starts with unifying families, school communities, and neighborhoods of all types.

Our structured, incentive-based programs provide opportunities for kids to grow and learn, especially in academics, health, social-emotional learning, and leadership development. We start young and serve the needs of the whole child, from elementary school to high school and beyond.

Our approach is to:

  • Engage youth through team sports and play to build relationships that last through high school and beyond
  • Enlist support from diverse networks of families, schools, and community members
  • Evaluate our programs to ensure continual learning
  • Expand young people’s view of their world and ability to impact their community
