Our Working On Womanhood (WOW) program kicked off the new school year by dreaming big with the Chicago Sky! Sprint sponsored over 100 of Youth Guidance’s WOW students on an unforgettable evening that included dinner with WNBA legend, Olympic medalist and role model Sheryl Swoopes. Students received free tickets to the game and a chance to meet and chat with some of their Chicago Sky idols. They also got a chance to interact with their WOW peers from different schools, strengthening their sense of WOW community. “The event was wonderful!” said one WOW student. “I was around different people and all of my friends.”
For our WOW girls, the opportunity to meet their role models is a life-changing event that also serves to strengthen the WOW Core Value of Visionary-Goal Setting. This helps them to envision the bright and successful future that all of Chicago’s youth deserve.
We are so grateful to our partners at Sprint for making this evening possible!
