In this one-hour virtual event, four inspiring ASM alumni and some of our current teens sat down for a compelling conversation on ASM’s positive impact on Chicago’s young people and communities over the years, what it really takes to pursue your dreams, how life’s hurdles (or global ones!) can be the fuel to your fire. Most importantly, this group discussed how you can use your talent and voice to create change!
Moderated by ASM instructor and well-known Hip-Hop artist Pinqy Ring, this event includes panelists actor Daniel Kyri (“Chicago Fire”), musician Thaddeus Tukes, pastry chef Amanda Alvarez, and Chicago Community Trust program manager Lauren Woods.
Watch After School Matters teens from across Chicago learn three awesome summer recipes with the instruction from three accomplished Chefs from Conagra Brands during our 2021 Summer Teen Cuisine Progressive Picnic Series presented by Conagra Brands!
