Build the Path this Summer!
This summer our programs will serve 150 children and teens in Humboldt Park:
- 45 Citybuilders apprentices serving in Harambee and our Dreambuilders children's program
- 55 children in our daily Dreambuilders children's program
- Peacebuilders will be organizing activities for around 50 junior high youth
All this activity is a tangible expression of our deep love for the families of Humboldt Park- and any act of love has a cost. Our summer programming will cost $169,300- nearly half of our annual budget. Generous givers and grantors have already pledged $91,800: $50,000 of which serves as a matching gift for our benefit goal of an additional $50,000. The remainder is $27,500, a total that will keep our youth safe and learning all summer.
Would you help us reach this goal?
We can raise the final $27,500 with:
There are countless ways to care for our kids, love our neighborhood, and support our staff to match your skills and availability.
- We still need a few extra hands during our Dreambuilders program with our children age 4-11. (You are welcome to bring your own children to programs as well!)
- Mentor a teen: We are always looking for loving and energetic adults who want to invest in one of our youth.
- Bring Snacks: Encourage our apprentices by stopping by our Harambee job site during morning water break or after work with Gatorade, watermelon or popsicles.
