In 2019, Bright Promises Foundation is celebrating our 150th anniversary by amplifying the voices of the people who matter most to us – young people themselves.
In addition to our regular programs, we are launching a year-long special initiative called Elevating Youth Voices. The goal of this initiative is to provide a platform to amplify the voices of youth leaders in Metropolitan Chicago and to invest in the continued development of young people who are working actively to improve their communities.
100% of your donation goes directly to support youth leaders through the Elevating Youth Voices initiative.
