Community & Afterschool Program – Making a Difference in Altgeld Gardens

blog67P1000668Youth Guidance’s Community & Afterschool program recently joined forces with TCA Health, Metropolitan Family Services, Chicago Public Schools and others to celebrate the upcoming school year in the Altgeld Gardens community.

The Mega Family Fun Fest included free school physicals, outdoor games, giveaways and raffle prizes, a talent showcase, family service referrals, games, and more. Youth from the Camp Fit Summer program at Carver Primary School displayed posters emphasizing lessons learned over the summer including etiquette, respect for elders and peers, and virtues such as honesty and integrity. The event brought together nearly 150 children, families and community members.
