Get IN Chicago is led by business leaders who have pledged support to identify the most promising practices to improve the lives and safety of Chicago’s youth.
To do this, Get IN Chicago partners with community-based organizations, public agencies and corporate funders to inspire creative solutions and collaboration, involve multiple stakeholders, and invest in innovative and effective strategies.
