Annual Report

Changed lives,
new opportunities

We continue to see young adults impacted in remarkable ways by our educational programs. This year students from the US, Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Ghana, and Brazil converged in Chicago for Great Connections 2017. 

Now a major foundation has asked us to explore running a one-year experimental Gap Year program. Research and budgeting for the program have been completed and we are awaiting final approval. The expansion of our educational programs will gives us significantly more reach, influence, and opportunity to impact the lives of young adults.
