BENEFITING: Urban Initiatives

Paripon Thanthong

THE STORY:

Chicago natives Jim Dower and Dan Isherwood founded Urban Initiatives in 2003 in Cabrini-Green. As CPS teachers and suburban soccer coaches, they started UI as a response to the lack of extracurricular programs for the children at Byrd Academy. The UI way allowed kids to learn, practice, and experience success. It became evident early on that this approach translated to the classroom. The principal and teachers at Byrd saw the positive impact in and around school. As word of their success spread, the demand for UI grew across CPS.
