When we created SocialWorks, our goal was simple – empower the youth and advocate for the fulfillment of success in all its forms.
In our shared journeys, growing up in Chicago, we had different ambitions. Some of us wanted to find success in the classroom, some within the entertainment industry, and others didn’t quite know. But the one thing we did have in common was someone who listened to us when we expressed ourselves and dreamt big.
SocialWorks aims to do just that! We want to unleash the potential across all youth and be an organization that responds to the needs of communities and people exploring solutions for the short-term and long-term. We want to help the next wave of youth just as others helped us.
By donating to our cause, you can help SocialWorks continue to run initiatives like Open Mike, The Warmest Winter, Kids of the Kingdom, My State of Mind, and the New Chance: Arts & Literature Fund. Initiatives that focus on education, mental health, homelessness, and performing and literary arts – directly affecting thousands of youth yearly.
We’re excited to continue to bring impactful initiatives to youth, and we hope you join us!
Justin, Chancelor, and Essence
