Dear CYC supporters,
We’re thrilled to share some exciting news: Chicago Youth Centers has been named one of the top 100 finalists out of 530 nominees for the 2017 Chicago Innovation Awards! The CIA nominees cut across all industries, from big tech companies to small non-profits.
In the coming weeks, we'll find out if we have been selected as one of the final 25 winners.
But here is where we need your help! We can also receive the People's Choice Award within the 2017 Neighborhood Award category.
Make sure to follow this link and vote for Chicago Youth Centers by Oct. 5! Let's spread the word so everyone knows what CYC is capable of.
We are so proud of our seven Centers that are truly 21st Century Learning Hubs and seek to bridge the employable skills gap facing low-income children, create opportunities for holistic and experiential learning, and connect youth ages 3-18 and their families to mentors and educational, cultural, and community resources.
Whether our students are working on building a robot or learning how to play a violin for the first time, CYC is helping them build a versatile skillset that is so crucial for success in the modern workplace.
We are honored to have made it this far in the nomination process and are eagerly anticipating the next steps.
Stay tuned for updates and thank you for your vote!
