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.

Our six-week summer internships give young Chicagoans invaluable insight into a variety of potential careers, including Accounting, Human Resources, Sales, and Marketing.

Blasting Barriers With College Scholarships

Now more than ever, it’s critical for our youth to have the education to pursue their dreams. Our College Scholarships program helps to remove financial barriers to higher education.

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