Our Mission

To empower the youth through the arts, education, and civic engagement.


SocialWorks aims to empower youth through the arts, education, and civic engagement while fostering leadership, accessibility, and positivity within the youth throughout Chicago.
By using this framework for our interactive spaces and experiences, SocialWorks hopes to nurture local talent and open new doors much like what its co-founder Chance The Rapper has done in the music industry.
By utilizing grassroots marketing and staying true to his vision, Chance has become the first streaming artist to be nominated for and win a Grammy. Together, SocialWorks and friends hope to move forward with the same spirit of innovation, bringing the city and its youth together.

The Approach

To inspire creativity, to build dreams, to let you be, you.

Leadership

SocialWorks builds every event with goals of providing youth a platform to be leaders. Through volunteering, dialogue, and performance, one moves with effectiveness while creating positive relationships within one’s community.

Accessibility & Inclusiveness

Our programs are designed by creating spaces which are open to the public, welcome to all, and easily navigable. This allows for ideas and thought that can be more easily discussed.

Positivity

A SocialWorks event is a positive one. By leading with positivity, we hope our attendees mirror that same feeling. Only with this can we begin to trust, communicate, respect, and value one another’s wellbeing, community, and city.
