Bright Futures Gala 2019

Celebrating 95 Years

Through last year’s Gala, we raised over $1,000,000 – providing significant funds to better the lives of children from Chicago’s most at-risk communities. We would very much appreciate your consideration of supporting the Youth Guidance Gala.

Support of the Gala helps us continue to deliver programs like Becoming a Man (BAM), which a University of Chicago study showed reduces violent crime arrests by 50% and increases on-time high school graduation rates by nearly 20% for students in BAM compared to a control group. Youth Guidance’s work also includes the Working on Womanhood (WOW) program, which helps to reduce depression and anxiety symptoms for young women struggling with on average more than five traumatic events in their young lives.

Youth Guidance serves more than 8,000 students in Chicago’s schools. More than 95% of our students are African-American and Hispanic/Latino.  Most reside in low income communities.

Here are some of their stories.

The Bright Futures Gala

Bright Futures Gala is Youth Guidance’s premier annual event to raise the necessary funds for the organization to support programs such as Becoming A Man (BAM) and Working on Womanhood (WOW), which served more than 11,000 youth directly this school year.

The event will take place this year at the Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago on May 16th 2019.
