Emerging Leaders in School

12 - 14 years old

This outreach program provides local CPS students with weekly Emerging Leaders curriculum classes at their school. Taught by our Teen Instructors, students get the opportunity to engage in learning leadership fundamentals through a variety of service-learning activities.

Keeping it Local

With four classes a week, the Emerging Leaders in School program serves 120 students a year at Carl Von Linne.

Other enrichment options at the school include Old Town School of Music, Joffrey Ballet, & the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Growth through growth

Middle-school students get to step outside of the classroom with our community garden space.

Participating students learn leadership through ecology: growing cycles, plant basics, growing their own plants, & helping plant in the outside garden space.
