Contribute to Team Urban Initiatives for the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
Urban Initiatives uses the inherent power of sports to meet student and community needs. Our model offers Chicago youth a continuum of programming in which prepares and supports youth as they navigate elementary, middle, high school, and beyond. Through engagement in our sport for social change work, students transition from Player to Team Captain to Coach.
We take a collaborative approach to development and work with parents, teachers, and community stakeholders to empower children to learn, practice, and experience success.
We create a diverse and inclusive environment, one in which participants are invited to join our teams, regardless of skill level, and engage with their peers through broad, citywide networks.
With a footprint of more than 55 Chicago Public Schools and 76,000 students served, we are poised for greater impact than ever before.
