For Our Ultimate Success (FOUS)

Youth Impact – our goal is to affect the lives of youth by creating quality after school and out-of-school time programs.

Youth Worker Impact – our goal is to impact, the youth work practice and individuals (youth practitioner, school teacher, law enforcement, social worker etc.) who work with youth by providing trainings, workshops and creating opportunities to collaborate, network and share resources.

For the third year in a row, FOUS Youth Development Services was a grant recipient of The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities. We are so excited and thankful for this support. Our 2018 project would focus around every day superheroes in the community.

Since we run school-based program for girls, we knew most students would want to be involved. The girls’ challenged the 4th-8th student body to write a brief essay on the subject of superheroes in the community. Everyone who completed the essay would get a superhero costume. The Superhero Event took place on October 26, 2018; it was a blast. Copy and paste the link below to your browser  to read a great article about the day and to experience our event.
