Summer is finally here and so are the AGB interns! Nothing feels better than giving well deserved students a chance to fulfill their dreams!

Do you recall when you  applied to your first job or prepared for your first day of college? You were a little nervous right? In the minority community there is a lack of knowledge regarding finances, life after undergrad, and how to secure your first job. The unknown causes fear. We are changing that! The Always Giving Back Foundation’s programs provide young people with their first employment opportunity and funds to advance their educational endeavors. We help them get past their fear and  prepare to excel in the workforce.

The culture of AGB Investigative Services is not only about giving but rejuvenating and restoring the minority community.  We are the philanthropic arm of AGB, so leave the door open for AGB employees to attend our Family First workshops and provide their relatives with a internship and scholarship at the end of the school year.

20% of AGB employees voluntarily donate on a biweekly bases because they believe in our mission. Their gift will progress Chicago youth past their wildest dreams. In the words of James Baldwin we want our youth to understand, their crowns have been bought and paid for. All they have to do is put it on their heads.

We are serious when we say your dollars matter! Your biweekly, monthly, or  annual devotion to our youth gives them the ability to see beyond their current circumstance. As a monthly subscriber you receive perks and special invitations. Join us in this  life changing opportunity. DONATE TODAY!

The AGB Foundation is working to build a legacy of young minority executives. Our former interns and scholars are not only preparing for life after college; they are doing amazing things on campus. Meet some of our developing leaders!

Jordan Lewis is an entrepreneur, DJ, 2018 Always Giving Back Foundation Summer Business Intern, and now Sophomore Class President at Trinity College. While in high school, Jordan started the company “Kids Going Out” to provide his peers with safe recreational events. He has applied that passion for service on his college campus. Jordan has facilitated class council meetings to improve student life for freshmen and has developed a course of action to help them track and accomplish goals. 

Haille Minor, photographer, artist, and a 2018 Always Giving Back Foundation Intern with a unique fashion sense, started an organization this year. Through Students With a Purpose (S.W.A.T), Haille’s fellow students can explore art styles and express themselves through a variety of artistic media.

These young adults are headed in the right direction! The AGB Foundation is dedicated to developing leaders, particularly underserved youth, and helping them find the right lane for their talents. Help us reach more young people by supporting the AGB Foundation today!

AGB Foundation presents a financial literacy event for young minority professionals on April 25, 2019

We all have preconceived notions about money that affect our spending habits. Is your ‘money mindset’ driving you forward or holding you back? If you’re a young, minority professional in Chicago, we invite you to attend the Always Giving Back Foundation’s upcoming workshop on financial literacy, “Money Mindset.” The free event will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at 6:30 pm.

Join us for this educational event to gain insight on money management and the fundamentals of wealth, including homeownership, credit repair, and life insurance. You’ll also have opportunities to network, win a raffle, and enjoy complimentary appetizers.

This workshop from the Always Giving Back Foundation is part of our Family First program, which seeks to provide support for young minority professionals and entrepreneurs.
