EVENT DATE Aug 06, 2016

THE STORY:

#TheTakeBack is an anti-violence / gun prevention initiative geared toward the youth of the South Side Chicago. Through this movement, we provide youth with a day of peaceful fun in an encouraging environment. #TheTakeBack began in 2014.

 

In the first two years, the initiative has serviced more than 700 youth & more than 150 young-adult volunteers led activities that encouraged and uplifted the children during safe play. Every year, each participant receives a meal to fuel them throughout the day. Last year, 5 youth received scholarships by raffle and every child left with 3 folders, 2 notebooks, pencils & pens. With partnerships, donations and support from The Community Builders, The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), Chicago Urban League, What's the Word TV, Chicago Youth Opportunities Initiative and other local organizations, #TheTakeBack showcased an array of positive encouragement, safe activities and endless fun for the community affectionately known as "The Low End" in Chicago.

 

#TheTakeBack 2016 will focus on expanding our efforts to influence more youth positively. In addition to organizing another peaceful day for the youth of Chicago, #TheTakeBack will provide school supplies for each attendee, award larger scholarships to more children, increase awareness across all platforms & acquire more sponsorship through various networks.
