Strengthening Communities Through Schools

We envision communities in which race or zip code no longer predict educational outcomes, where neighbors collaborate to ensure that all children receive what they need to reach their fullest potential.

Invest in Equity

Get Involved

Join us in the fight for educational equity, one community at a time.

It’s always a great day when our friends from Discover come to visit! On Tuesday, 20 volunteers joined us at the Family Care Closet to unload food items from the box truck, organize and restock shelves, and assemble recipe kits for our families. We are so grateful for our partnership with Discover and all they have done for the North Chicago community!

Last weekend we launched our Saturday Enrichment Program at AJK! At Saturday Program, middle school students are provided a safe place to develop important life skills and have fun. Last weekend, students played basketball, volleyball and soccer, created their own marble run out of playdoh, Dixie cups and cardboard, colored with oil pastels, and played board games. Everyone enjoyed pizza and dessert from Lukes of Lake Bluff for lunch and participated in a raffle at the end of the day. Our staff and students had a blast last weekend and can’t wait for the next session on October 15th!
