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 Equitable Education for all Children

Get Involved

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

Last Friday, North Chicago Community Partners hosted a Spring Family Event at AJ Katzenmaier Academy. The event included a variety of health and wellness activities to teach and promote healthy-living! The event was a great way for students and families to strengthen their relationships with one another and the community—and judging from all the smiles, we’d say it was a success! 😊

During our After School Enrichment Program, K-1 students at Forrestal Elementary read the book “Ten Black Dots” as a part of our ongoing Fun with Books program! Students then got to add ten dot stickers to their own drawings. Activities like this help kids think more critically about the stories they hear!

You can walk many different paths to a happier state of mind, but it’s a lot more fun if you dance your way there— and that’s exactly what District 187 (D187) students have been learning through Rhythm+. 

“Reaching Hearts of Youth Through Health and Movement” program, or “Rhythm+” is an enrichment program that moved and grooved its way into D187 schools about a year ago and it hasn’t stopped empowering students through the teaching of dance and movement since. 

In collaboration with North Chicago Community Partners (NCCP), the amazing partner duo behind Rhythm+, Coach Natoia and Coach Ty, work to encourage D187 students to grow their social and emotional learning (SEL) skills through movement and dance. The program also teaches students stress management skills by introducing them to a healthy way of expressing themselves and encouraging them to channel their energies into a positive activity-- like dancing!

Thank you, Coach Natoia and Coach Ty for teaching students about the interconnectedness of body and mind—and for encouraging them to keep both well cared for through Rhythm+! 💃🕺
