BENEFITING: Urban Initiatives
About Kozminski Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play Program in the spring of 2014.
- Located in the Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 370 students.
- 97% of the school population is African American. 89% come from low-income households.
- The staff and administration at Kozminski empower students to be responsible for themselves, their schoolwork, and their actions. Urban Initiatives has found an excellent partner in Kozminski.
- On Kozminski's first game day, a large group of parents, the principal, coaches, school staff, and various people from the Hyde Park community all came out to cheer for the home team! There was even a photographer there who developed pictures on the spot for parents and kids.
