HOW WE DO IT

The 3 P’s (Power, Purpose, & Pathways) are the foundation of True Chicago programming. This approach allows to tackle the problems Black and Brown youth are facing.

THE THREE P'S IN ACTION

POWER

Provide Black and Brown youth with the power to create their art, expanding their opportunities to grow in their craft outside of school.

PURPOSE

Help youth find their purpose by exposing them to the arts and creative industries in Chicago.

PATHWAYS

 Guide youth and support them on their way to a pathway specific to their talents and passions.
