Not only is it our 150th anniversary, but this year marked 20 years of the Youth Leadership Awards!
We always wonder if can get better, but every year our Youth Leadership Awards raises the bar. We appreciate those who attended and our fantastic sponsors who contributed to this inspiring event that raised over $900,000 for UCAN’s important services and programs throughout Chicago.
If you weren’t able to make it, here is a quick recap:
1. Our youth winners, as usual, shined the brightest – check out their stories below:
2. We welcomed 20 UCAN alumni back to be celebrated on stage.
3. Dave Casper, US CEO of BMO Financial Group, accepted the prestigious John D. Nichols Impact Award for his dedication to community and youth in Chicago.
4. We announced the beginning stages of an ambitious fundraising effort that will transform what we do, who we can reach and the change we can inspire. Learn more about our work and how we harness the Power of Potential.
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the Youth Leadership Awards. We can’t wait until next year!
