Educational/Cultural Enrichment Field Trips

We take youth and their parents (as chaperones) on an average of two (2) field trips during the summer months and weekends when children are out of school and can find themselves tempted to engage in gang-related or other destructive activities. We deliberately attend places like Navy Pier and the Medieval Times Dinner which are relatively far from the South Side neighborhoods, and would otherwise be inaccessible to the families we serve. Importantly, these activities are also fun and engaging – effective substitutes for the activities our participants might otherwise be involved with.
