Empowering Chicago’s Youth
At Chicago Lights, we meet people where they are and build trust and true connection, partnering with thousands of students and adults as they pursue their goals and lead fulfilling lives.
We’re creating a joyful summer for Chicago’s youth through our Summer Day Program and Summer Farm Camp.
The Chicago Lights Summer Day Program is back in person this year at the Gratz Center. The program provides students with reading, writing, and math skills to overcome pandemic learning loss.
Summer Farm Camp
Grow fruits and vegetables, make new friends, and learn about art and peace at our Urban Farm’s Summer Farm Camp. Open to ages 6-11, Farm Camp gives kids the opportunity to learn outside.
