Support Urban Initiatives' 2021 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Team!
Urban Initiatives (UI) is a Chicago-based nonprofit organization that uses the power of sport and play to empower Chicago’s youth to achieve academic success, develop social-emotional skills, and build social capital. UI is grateful to once again partner with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to raise funds in the run up to the 2021 Marathon!
UI's programming continues to focus on remote engagements with an emphasis on social emotional learning that will help students to process the COVID-19 crisis, continue their learning, and connect with positive adult role models. When Chicago Public Schools return to in-person learning, UI's team is prepared to adapt our programs again to meet students' needs.
UI has continued to support our students, families and school communities throughout the pandemic. Chicago is experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and trauma, but we know that sport and play have the power to support the healing process. We also know that building resilience in our youth is of the utmost importance.
This is where you come in.
Your donation will directly impact the youth in Urban Initiatives' programs. By donating even as little as $10, you will help to provide the following programming:
- Social-emotional learning and play-based curriculum for elementary school students
- Social-emotional learning and high school readiness curriculum for middle school students
- College and career readiness curriculum for high school students
Thank you for your support!
