Since 1991, After School Matters has transformed the lives of more than 200,000 young people in Chicago. Our impact is not only visible in the young people that show up to programs every day, but in our alumni. These former After School Matters teens, now adults, are all over the city of Chicago and beyond, furthering their education, empowering their communities, and achieving their dreams.
This giving season, we want to share some of their stories with you, as well as give them the opportunity to talk about how their experience in our programs helped shape them for their future.
With your support, we will be able to give more teens the chance to create and tell their own stories. There are so many out there..we simply don’t have capacity to reach them yet. The momentum we have created together for After School Matters is unstoppable, and we must continue to support it.
