Sprouting leaders within our communities.
One seed at a time.
We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting continuous academic growth and personal development among youth in some of Chicago’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods. Through mentorship, education, and service we aspire to transform our youth to become leaders within their communities.
WHAT WE DO
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Pressed on time but still want to give back? Donate to our cause to help fund our programming and expand our reach. All donations are tax deductible. We greatly appreciate your support!
Be the Difference
Middle school students with a mentor are 55% more likely to enroll in a four-year college. Help inspire our youth to become confident in themselves and facilitate their transition to high school and beyond.
Volunteer your Time
Looking for a fun and rewarding way to give back to your community? Sprouting Leaders hosts a variety of volunteer events throughout the year such as School Improvement Days, career days, summer fundraising events, toy-drives and more!
My House Music Festival
We are super excited to be MHMF's beneficiary for the third year in a row! Come out and enjoy two days of incredible music, art, and local merch + food vendors. And don't forget to swing by our booth to see what we've been up to!
A big THANK YOU to Ella and Kasarah, and to the University of Chicago's Civic Engagement Program for all their support.
Summer Enrichment Program (SEP)
SL and Prospanica partnered this summer to create the SEP, which provides professional development opportunities to high school students living in underrepresented and under served communities.
