Until we normalize suitcases not trash bags for Youth in care, the “Roll Out in Style” suitcase drive will continue. Youth transitioning from the guardianship of the State into adulting on their own should never be provided with a garbage bag. There is a State bill that was passed, that agrees. So, until it no longer a exists, we will continue to provide suitcases across Illinois. Your donation of $50 covers the cost of a suitcase and a few basic personal care items.
These are typically interactive seminars or programs designed to create healthier and higher quality of life for underserved or at-risk youth. These workshops are intended to promote a positive sense of self-worth, enhance decision making skills, foster positive social connections and a higher moral system of beliefs.
For many of our youth, from at-risk communities, international travel is beyond their reach, help us to provide cultural enrichment and introduce them to a world beyond the city streets and build character.
For the youth in the communities we serve, the opportunity to continue an education beyond high school means a chance at independence, career options and hopefully, higher earning potential. Furthering their education is a chance many wish to take but very few can afford. Donate and help make dreams a reality. Scholarships are for students at an accredited college or trade school.
