Chicago is a tale of two cities.

We are one of the great cities of the world, yet violence, poverty, and a lack of opportunity plague too many of our neighborhoods. Young African Americans in Chicago are six times more likely than whites to be unemployed and out of school. Our young people of color want to work. But there aren’t nearly enough jobs for them.

It’s time to write a new story.

The AGB Foundation is blasting barriers to educational access and professional opportunities for young Chicagoans in underserved areas.

2017 Summer Business Interns

Our cadre of Summer Business Interns spent six weeks learning the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and running a business. They couldn’t have been more excited about this opportunity. We also awarded $6,500 in scholarships to deserving students in 2017.
