BENEFITING: Urban Initiatives
Justin Smart (in the red jersey), a long time Work to Play participant and now a Take the Lead team captain at Crispus Attucks Elementary (State and 51st), has been selected for a prestigious National Outdoor Leadership School scholarship! Throughout his tenure as an Urban Initiatives participant at Attucks, Justin has exhibited the leadership and compassion that merit this award. Additionally, through hard-work, he was recently accepted to King High School (a South Side magnet school), where he’ll begin next fall.
Though NOLS generously offered Justin a scholarship for the course, Justin's airfare to and from Washington is not covered. Please help us send Justin on this life-changing experience. Any size donation would be greatly appreciated by Justin and the whole Urban Initiatives team.
During his NOLS trip, Justin will be backpacking in the Cascade Mountains of Washington for two weeks in July. To read about his trip, click here.
