mission statement

We are Chicago Youth Shakespeare (CYS): dedicated to putting the timeless works of Shakespeare into the hands of 21st-century teenagers. Through performance, education, and outreach programs, CYS is connecting students across Chicagoland with Shakespeare and with each other. CYS is committed to providing a safe space for students of all backgrounds, and to fostering a diverse community of creative young artists and compassionate global citizens.

If you're as passionate about our cause as we are, it'd be amazing if you created a fundraiser on CrowdRise to raise money for our Charity. CrowdRise makes it super easy and fun, and your support is invaluable to our mission. Consider giving up your next birthday by asking for donations instead of gifts. Or run a marathon and ask your friends to sponsor you. We love getting donations but there's nothing better than when you go a step further and help us raise money from your network of friends. Lots of little donations really do add up. The power of the crowd is real. Please create a fundraiser and help us make a real-life difference for this incredibly important cause.
