About The 1911 Initiative

Location:

430 E. 162nd Street #299, South Holland, IL 60473, US

Mission Statement

The 1911 Initiative provides support to local organizations that address the needs of Chicagoland youth and their families. We believe that success in education begins at home, and we ardently work to ensure that students’ basic needs and higher education goals are met and achieved. Our mission is to disrupt the inequitable social constructs that plague our disenfranchised Chicagoland youth and young adults, providing them opportunities to excel educationally, and to equip them as leaders who will further elevate our communities. We partner with local non-profits who directly address the needs of our young scholars by providing educational scholarships, mentoring opportunities and basic needs fulfillment. Through our social event fundraisers, we bring our brothers and sisters together to party with the purpose of uplifting future generations of positive social impactors through support of our community partners.

Description

The 1911 is a new non-profit, but not new to partnering with other local organizations who prioritize the educational needs of our community's youth and young adults. We curate social event fundraisers to support non-profits in the Greater Chicago Area that help students with scholarships, basic needs and mentoring. Over the past seven years, we've raised $20,000 and are working to meet that amount this year alone. With your help, we can host larger events that will allow us to raise more for the organizations that support our young people.
