January may have chilled us a bit, but guess what? We’re back in action and turning up the heat with our programs! Our Thrive program is buzzing with after-school excitement at KIPP Chicago, gearing up for some fantastic events at the Child Thrive Center.

Our early learners are on a mission with a heartwarming book drive. And the rest of us? Well, we’re diving headfirst into creating a more equitable and vibrant community for everyone.

And a MASSIVE thank you to our Child Champions who raised $33,731 during our year-end Hope for the Holidays Campaign. It is people like you that keep stoking the flame for positive change. Let’s make 2024 a year of meaningful forward movement toward better education, health, and equity for all.

Jin us in perusing the highlights of this eventful month below, and stay tuned for a glimpse of what lies ahead.
