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 Scholars and 2017 Summer Business Interns

2017 AGB scholars

Introducing our 2017 Scholars and 2017 Summer Business Interns.

We awarded (3) $1500 Scholarships and (4) $500 Supplemental Scholarships to these graduating seniors.  We are very excited to see how their future unfolds.

Our (4) Summer Business Interns will spend 6-weeks learning the fundamentals of a entrepreneur and the essentials of running a business.  They couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity.

AGB Foundation Annual Holiday Benefit

It’s that time again!  The Always Giving Back Foundation is excited to showcase our 2017 AGB Foundation Scholars and Summer Business Interns at the Annual Holiday Benefit here in Chicago.

Each year we expand our reach and access to young people through community partners, schools, civic leaders, and individuals. Our work is made more possible with YOUR support. Last year’s event raised over $10,000.  We want to exceed that goal.

Be a part of the base of supporters for the next generation of game-changers and plan to join us in this life enriching opportunity.

We are creating life changing opportunities for Chicago youth and inspiring the next generation of business leaders.
