It is time to Celebrate!
It’s time for a grandiose celebration folks! AGB Investigative Services turns 20! Can you believe that it all started in the basement of the Griffin Family home? Fast forward to 20 years later and they are THE largest Black owned security company in the nation! They employ over 1200 individuals and are located in 17 states across the nation. AGB is also in the midst of opening up a new Cyber Security Office. It will be located on the South Side of Chicago where AGB will provide high paying technical jobs in one of the fastest growing Industries.

The Mission Continues
The AGB Foundation is celebrating AGB’s 20th year by continuing the annual Community Day of Service that will take place on Monday April 12th. This year, we will support 5 community organizations by providing care packages filled with the essentials. Some of the essentials include; soap, feminine products, hair brushes, PPE, and a few other items packed with love and support by the AGB Staff.
The 5 community organizations that we are supporting this year are: Margaret’s Village, Sheldon Heights Church Food Pantry, Ujima Village Overnight Shelter, and St. Sabina Food Pantry. We will deliver 300 care packages for our homeless and less fortunate residents in the south side of Chicago. It is our ministry to continue to help and uplift our community and fulfill our mission of disrupting the cycle of poverty through workforce development, financial wellness and philanthropy.

Access and Opportunity
Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” This is why we continue to create access and opportunity for our Chicago youth who attend a 2 year college or 4 year university through our Scholars Program. Our Scholarship not only provides financial support, but an array of services that include giving our scholars a professional resume, professional headshot, and an updated LinkedIn profile. The total amount of U.S. student debt has reached over 1.5 trillion. This makes student loans the second largest source of consumer debt behind mortgage debt. We want to alleviate some of the costs to 5 wonderful students. If you know of any high school seniors in Chicago who are about to embark on their higher educational journey, please have them apply for our AGB scholarship today!
