Age 18

In the last seven years, 100% of our youth have matriculated to college.  But, retention is key. We work with our youth through the age of 25 in an effort to help them stay in college, graduate, and begin their career. Getting an education and securing a career is the surest path out of poverty for our youth and we endeavor to help them every step of the way. This is our #CYPpromise to them.  

Summer News Update

Cooking, Coding, and Public Speaking were just some of the programs offered this summer; coupled with Basketball Training and virtual field trips, our six (6) week summer CYvP Program for Pre-K through High School was absolutely amazing! Let’s not forget the addition of Family Night, which was held twice weekly, as a way to give parents an opportunity to engage in fun activities with their children and the CYP community.

Age 17

In Chicago, 60% of black students will graduate high school. At CYP we celebrate a 100% high school graduation rate among this same population.

During COVID 19 CYP has made adjustments to continue our work in the community.

Chicago Youth Programs has transitioned to working remotely. While the current crisis necessitates how we work, it is clearer now perhaps more than ever, the importance of why we do what we do. It is moments like these that underscore the vital role we play in the lives of our youth and their families, acting now as a pipeline to connect them with much needed resources as they too navigate this crisis.

Spring News Update

CYP partnered with Feed Chicago and provided seven hundred and fifty (750) hot meals to families and essential workers in the community. We especially want to thank Epic Burger and Beach Burrito for their contributions.
