Last year we continued to grow and expand our programs to reach even more teens throughout Chicagoland. Recent accomplishments include:
We serve 500 teens a year
Our 1:2 adult-to-teen ratio enables us to connect one-on-one
86% of our kids grow in responsible behavior
89% of our kids see improvement in their teamwork skills
91% of our kids say our programs build self-confidence
Our participation rate has grown 30% every year
Despite our continued growth and success, we still serve only a fraction of the more than 200,000 at-risk teens in Chicago. Our limited resources prevent us from hiring more program leaders, purchasing more equipment, covering program fees and transportation costs, and ultimately, serving more kids.
Feedback from community partners and the kids we serve reminds us that our programs are not just outdoor activities, but life-changing experiences. All of our programs expose at-risk teens to a world that would otherwise be inaccessible.
Our teens grow and discover their potential through personal experiences with Chicago Voyagers. Consider making a life-changing gift today.
