Our Mission

Your Passion

We are a Chicagoland not-for-profit with a mission of preparing future innovators through our positive youth development programs. Our goal is to help students find and nurture their passions.


Additionally, we partner with corporate 4-H sponsor Cornerstone  Education to run the Chicago 4-H International Club (established in 2017). Our club was recognized by the National 4-H Council and nationally chartered in 2020. 


Our project-based learning programs in STEAM, career development, college planning, healthy living, and civic engagement are designed to build the next generation through creativity, strong critical thinking, services, leadership skills, and global vision.
