Durbin, area hospitals confront gun violence Senator’s HEAL initiative involves area hospitals collaborating to confront gun violence as public health crisis By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

United States Sen. Dick Durbin is hoping a partnership with local hospitals will help reduce violence and improve the quality of life in some of Chicago’s most challenged communities. Durbin talked about his Chicago HEAL initiative during a visit to west suburban Maywood on Aug. 7. As part of the initiative, 10 hospitals across the city and suburbs — including Sinai Health System, Cook County Health and Hospitals System, Loyola University Medical Center, Northwestern Medicine and Rush University Medical Center — have each committed to achieving three major goals in 18 focus neighborhoods on the city’s West and South Sides. Austin, West Garfield Park and North Lawndale are among those focus areas. “People say to me, ‘What are we going to do about the gun violence in America?’ I mean it’s horrible,” said Durbin said. “The latest stories are heartbreaking stories.” The senator referenced two mass shootings that happened in less than a day and rocked the nation. On Aug. 3, a 21-year-old gunman walked into a Walmart in El Paso, Texas and killed 22 people and wounded 24 others in what See HEAL on page 8

GIVING IT A WHIRL: Lime, an e-scooter vendor, holds an informational session on Aug. 7 in Humboldt Park. The event got more West Side residents interested in the low-key transportation device.

West Siders take e-scooters for test drives Lime, one of 10 e-scooter vendors, hosted demonstration on Aug. 7

By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

They’ve been popping out all over the West Side over the past three months. They are lined up on the streets, sometimes in rows, and, every once in a while, you can see people riding them. On June 15, the Chicago Department of Transportation launched the electric scooter rideshare pilot program. Ten companies

— including Lyft, which also operates the Divvy bike share program — got the licenses to put out scooters that residents can rent using their smartphones. The pilot includes all of the West Side and much of the Northwest Side, with neighborhoods that don’t have many Divvy docking stations like Austin and West Garfield Park receiving special priority. As part of the pilot, the vendors have to hold community events where residents

get a chance to learn how to ride e-scooters safely and legally. Lime, a San Francisco based company that operates scooter-sharing, bike-sharing and car-sharing programs throughout the world, held several events in Austin, West Garfield Park and most recently West Humboldt Park. Most people who interviewed said that they were glad that they had the opportunity to experience the

A BIG DEAL: St. Catherine-St. Lucy Principal Sharon Lemy, center, is surrounded by students and Father George Omwando during the Aug. 7 ribbon-cutting for the school’s new playground.

A new park for an old school brings relief to Austin youth New playground installed at St. Catherine St. Lucy, thanks to $25K Enchanted Backpack donation By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

On Aug. 7, school officials, parents, students and community members gathered on the grounds of St. Catherine-St. Lucy School for a ribbon-cutting ceremony held to celebrate the installation of a small park on the school’s playground. Father George Omwando, St. Catherine of Siena-St. Lucy Parish’s pastor, prayed and sprinkled holy water on the gathering. Young, smiling children lined up for inaugural trips down the slide. The associate superintendent of the Archdiocese of Chicago even showed up. The small park, built with a $25,000 donation from Enchanted Backpack — a Bensenville, Ill.-based charitable organization that provides resources to schools in need — may seem quaint to the uninitiated. For students like 7-year-old Danielle Porter, however, the park is a paved and wood-chipped oasis amid a concrete expanse. “When it was just concrete, I always tripped,” Porter said during last Wednesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. “Now with the blacktop and the woodchips, I feel safer, because when I trip it won’t be as bad.” Dan Doody, who volunteers on St. Catherine’s community board, said that the school received free backpacks stuffed with school supplies from Enchanted Backpacks three years ago, which qualified it for the $25,000 grant. School officials applied for the grant in August and construction started in April, Doody said.

“For 100 years, kids have been playing on asphalt,” Doody said, referencing the school’s long, storied history. Sharon Lemy, school’s principal, said that around 85 percent of the school’s roughly 180 preschool through eighth-grade students are from Austin, which makes the addition of a proper play area all the more critical. “There was really nothing for them to do except run around and fall down,” said Erin Durkin, St. Catherine St. Lucy’s preschool director. “Injuries happened every day. Skinned knees, bumped heads.” Arnette Young, a longtime eighth-grade teacher at the school, echoed Durkin. “It’s been hard — they’ve hard injuries on this playground,” she said. “I’ve seen some of the smaller kids going into the office. This is something much needed for the smaller children. I’m really excited for them to have their own space. We have a large Austin population, so it’s very important for them to have somewhere to come and play safely.” CONTACT: michael@austinweeklynews.com

LETTERS Pro bono attorneys needed to address growing justice gap According to the Legal Services Corporation Justice Gap report, low-income Americans received no or inadequate legal help for 86 percent of their non-criminal legal problems. These issues include domestic violence, divorce, child support, veterans’ benefits, disability access, housing conditions, health care and more. Many of these people are not receiving legal services despite qualifying for assistance because of a shortage of attorneys to represent them. In Cook County alone, approximately one half of the 1.4 million people who qualify for legal aid will need assistance in any given year. However, current legal aid programs and pro bono attorneys in Illinois cannot come close to meeting that need. This shortage of pro bono attorneys not only affects the number of low-income or disadvantaged people served, but also the disposition of justice. Studies consistently show that the outcome of contested matters often turns on whether a low-income or disadvantaged person has representation. Pro Bono Network (PBN) has been working ceaselessly since 2011 to combat this

shortage by expanding the pool of attorneys available to represent those who cannot afford legal services. PBN recruits, trains, places, and supports lawyers who want to be of service but have limitations on their availability or resources. These include attorneys who are on career breaks, have retired, or are solo practitioners. The unmet need, however, is still vast. PBN invites interested attorneys to attend one of our open houses in Oak Park or Oak Brook to learn more about how they can get the support they need to use their law license to assist those in need. The first is on Thursday August 23rd from 9:30 to 11:30 am at the Oak Park Public Library. The second is on Thursday August 30th from 10 to noon at the Oak Brook Public Library. PBN will also be conducting trainings for specific projects in mid-September. For more information or questions, email sheila.pont@pro-bono-network.org.

Odyssey Project launches new Austin course location

The free humanities program comes to Austin Town Hall By KENDALL POLIDORI AustinTalks

After nearly 20 years of offering a 32-week college credit program, the Odyssey Project will for the first time hold classes in Austin for adults with limited access to a college education. Through Illinois Humanities, Austin residents can apply to be part of the free program to be held at Austin Town Hall, 5610 W. Lake St. The new location was added to the list that has included Greater Grand Crossing, Rogers Park and Cicero to make the program more accessible for Chicagoans across the city, according to Audrey Petty, director of projects. “We are committed to welcoming and serving as many students as we can,” Petty said. “We really prioritize locations that are accessible by public transportation.” Petty said the opportunity to expand the program to the Austin community has to do with equity and offering meaningful and high quality education to adults living on the West Side. At the age of 55, Mateo Gonzalez said it’s

intimidating to go back to school. In 2013, he joined the program, taking a Spanish language course after hearing about it on a radio show. He called and got an interview the next day, going on to attend the class, which was in Pilsen at the time. “Pushing myself to take the course has helped me in many ways,” Gonzalez said. “I have personally grown as a human being.” Gonzalez said he never heard of philosophy before taking a class on the subject, and he even learned aspects of his own culture he had not known before. The program was the first time he was able to communicate with people his age and of different backgrounds in a classroom setting. “It really opened my eyes to a whole different world,” Gonzalez said. In September, he will finish his fourth year of classes through the University of Chicago Odyssey scholarship program. He said he wants to be involved as much as he can with his community and education, and share it with others. “It has transformed the way I look at the world,” Gonzalez said. “Without the program I would be the same person I was back in 2013.” Petty said the number of people accepted for each class location varies; she estimates the Austin location will be able to accommodate about 24 students.

The program students explore five different subjects: literature, philosophy, art history, U.S. history, and critical thinking and writing. Petty said the program is part of a national collective that revolves around the Clemente Course, which has a strong focus on humanities for adults facing economic hardships. “We believe these are essential lenses and disciplines,” Petty said. Toy Robinson, a teaching assistant, took her first year course in 2015 on the South Side. After continuing classes for two years, Robinson was asked to take on her current position in 2017. Previously a student of the program herself, Robinson said it was difficult as an adult to do something for herself and make time. “For me, it was a place where I found my spot,” she said. Robinson will be in her second year of the University of Chicago scholarship program this fall and plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Robinson said bringing the Odyssey Project to the West Side is important, because residents will have the opportunity to find a whole new community of people in the place they live. “The program filled a need in my life,”

Robinson said. “I wanted to continue school, but I did not have the resources or the time … it was there for me.” Students in the program study with professors from local universities and can earn six transferable college credits from Bard College. The program, which is free for all accepted applicants, is made possible through funding from the state and federal government, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Seabury Foundation, Northwestern University, University of Chicago’s Civic Knowledge Project and the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities. Funding for the program pays for classrooms, books, snacks and childcare for students’ children when possible. The program also offers transportation assistance if there is demonstrated need. Petty said although there are specific locations for the classes, all Chicago residents are welcome to apply and attend the one closest to them. To be considered, applicants must be 18 or older and be income eligible. Applications will be accepted until Aug. 15, and accepted applicants will be announced the last week in August.

BETTER LOTS: The city has improved several vacant lots in North Lawndale that will be turned over the community. Above, the lot at 3626 W. Ogden Ave. Below, the lot at 2119-2125 S. Lawndale Ave. IGOR STUDENKOV/ Contributor

In North Lawndale, a city lot with promise

Last month, city approved lease for large lot with Young Professionals of North Lawndale By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

Now that the City of Chicago has improved several vacant lots in North Lawndale, having added features to reduce flooding in the surrounding blocks and make them more suitable for recreation, local community organizations will be stepping in to take care of those spaces. In 2013, the city launched the Resilient Corridors project in order to flooding on the West Side through implementing various flood mitigation features at several cityowned lots. Local nonprofit organizations would be responsible for maintaining the spaces and running community programs. On July 24, the City Council unanimously approved the lease with Young Professionals of North Lawndale for a large lot near the Del-Kar Pharmacy building and a lease with Lawndale Christian Health Center for lots near the Pink Line’s Central Park ‘L’ station. The leases were approved by a routine vote on a package of ordinances and resolutions that cleared the Committee on Housing & Real Estate earlier that month. During a community meeting hosted by Ald. Michael Scott (24th) in 2017, Michael Berkshire, the Chicago Department of Planning and Development’s green projects administrator, said that the same set of pipes that carry water going into faucets also carries water that gets collected when it rains — a major weakness in the system. To take the burden off the sewers, the lots are modified to either store the water until after the rain stops or absorb the water into the ground. Once the improvements were completed,

the city planned to lease the lots to area community organizations, which would be responsible for maintaining them and organizing community programs. According to city documents, the lots are leased for a symbolic $1 a year until Dec. 31, 2023, though they may be renewed for up to two more years. Young Professionals of North Lawndale is nonprofit organization headed by Edwin Muldrow, the owner of Del Kar Drugs pharmacy, at 3724-25 W. 16th St. According to the group’s Facebook page and Muldrow’s LinkedIn page, the organization’s goal is to “connect young professionals to diverse opportunities for networking, health, professional development and community involvement.” The city installed a paved area in the lot that is permeable, so rain can seep through. Some of it goes into a temporary water holding tank on the site and some goes into the ground. The city also planted trees and native plants on the rest of the lot in order in order to stabilize the soil and encourage more water to seep into the ground. Muldrow said that he didn’t know that the lease was approved until contacted by the newspaper, adding that he was not prepared to share any details about what his group would do with the lot until he receives the signed lease from the city. “I don’t want to count the chickens before they hatch,” he said.

BIG WEEK L

Ain’t no shame in second-hand!

ast week I wrote about all my unfinished projects. The main reason I have so many is because I’m addicted to second-hand shopping. Be it thrifting, garage sales, eBay, or local derivatives like Letgo, Craigslist, Offer up, Facebook Marketplace, demolition auction sales and Habitat for Humanity resale stores, second-hand is the only way to go. The majority of people know about Goodwill and Salvation Army. They are the two oldest staples of thrift stores. I prefer Goodwill over Salvation Army because their stores are newer and extremely well organized. I’ve also found their prices to be better. Sadly, there is only one Goodwill store in the entire city of Chicago. Why? This past Saturday, I was searching for a plant stand for my deck. I passed by a Goodwill store and decided to stop in. I didn’t find a plant stand, but I did find a whole house attic vent fan. I looked inside, and it was brand new. It had all the paperwork and the price tag said $19.99. I couldn’t resist! Another project, yes, but knowing I need to have an electrician come in and do some work anyway, I will add this to the list of what he can perform. I doubt there’s anybody who doesn’t know about eBay. I was looking for nails for my nail gun, and after going to four hardware stores and wasting precious gas, I gave up. A quick search on eBay, and not only did I find the size of nails I needed, but the price was very acceptable. I ordered two packages that will last me years. One of the reasons I needed so many

nails is that I had used a local online resale site to purchase cedar paneling for my basement closet. The woman’s description was kind of vague, but the price was too good to pass up. I ended up with 11 packages of tongue and groove cedar planks for $60. And they were not the small box of planks but the ones that are 9 feet long! I have slowly been using them to line the closet and it is coming along nicely. Recently a man advertised a set of power tools. I had been looking for a battery operated reciprocating saw and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that he offered it, plus a circular saw, a drill, along with two batteries and the charger for $40. I quickly messaged him; we agreed to meet in a very public place. I now have those tools and they work just fine. When it comes to things for the house, nothing beats Habitat for Humanity resale stores. Whenever I have needed something for the house, I have always managed to find it there. Their prices are very reasonable and with my bungalow now approaching 100 years old, maintenance is an absolute necessity. Demolition auctions are also the way to go. I needed a new tub to replace the one I already have because it had developed an irreparable crack at the bottom. Fortunately, I found a house in Lincoln Park, less than 20 years old, which was going to be demolished by the new owners. The house had a very nice tub that I could use and all I had to do was get it out. My handyman and I did get it out. Another project, but at least one that can be done in the winter!

A holistic approach from page 1 law enforcement officials believe was a hate crime. Less than 24 hours later, on Aug. 4, 10 people were killed and 27 wounded during a shooting in Dayton, Ohio. “And then, of course, we know what happens in our own communities,” Durbin said, honing his focus. “In my hometown of East St. Louis, Maywood, Chicago — you name it. On the weekends, the guns start blazing.” The senator said that the most obvious solution to the problem — banning high-powered assault weapons and enacting other gun laws that would make owning guns much tougher — is “not likely,” given that Republicans control the U.S. Senate and the presidency. “I had reached a point of frustration. I’m thinking, ‘I’m elected to this office, I’m supposed to solve these problems, I’m supposed to make life better, what am I going to do?’ Well, then something happened,” Durbin said, before recalling the origins of his HEAL initiative. “I visited Rush Hospital.” Durbin said that he sat down with a physician and a former alderman who were proposing a program that would “look outside the hospital at the neighborhood we live in and we are going to try to make that neighborhood better.” According to a summary of the HEAL initiative released by Durbin’s office, efforts “to prevent and reduce gun violence must address the trauma and toxic stress in our communities and address socioeconomic determinants of health.” The summary identifies a series of “root, structural factors” that contribute to disparities in wellbeing between wealthy and poor residents — including economic disinvestment, segregation, institutional racism, poor education and high unemployment. The 10 Chicago area hospitals have each committed to increasing local hires, supporting community partnerships like affordable housing pilot programs, and prioritizing certain in-hospital clinical practices like implicit bias and cultural competency training. “For us, it is much more than being a hospital or one of the largest employers in the community,” Loyola Medicine President and CEO Shawn P. Vincent. “It is really about being an active partner in the community we serve. This is our backyard. This is our community.” Bishop Dr. Reginald Saffo, a prominent suburban pastor, said that his organization established the Urban First Responders Program in collaboration with Loyola and is hoping to extend its reach into the West Side. “The principal is to prepare the churches to interact with hospitals to provide that continuity of care beyond the doors of the hospital, so we have a training piece in place already,” Saffo said, adding that he’s looking to partner with other hospitals in the city, such as Loretto in Austin.

ESCOOTERS

THE LIME LIGHT: The Business Technology Education Center partnered with Lime in order to “build community through STEM education.”

Growing demand from page 1 program and that they were more inclined to rent e-scooters in the future. According to a 2018 study by DePaul University’s Chaddick Institute, the presence of e-scooters on the South and West Sides improves transportation options, giving residents more transportation options beyond cars. The study also found that e-scooters are more cost-effective than cars for trips over short distances. But e-scooters haven’t been without controversy. Even before the pilot got underway, there were concerns about riders not following traffic rules and e-scooters potentially causing injuries. According to Streetsblog Chicago, the Illinois Department of Public Health indicated that, as of July 29, it received reports of 129 emergency room visits for scooter-related injuries since the pilot launched. Within this newspaper’s coverage area, Stroger Hospital reported receiving four emergency room visits, with one patient requiring surgery, while Mt. Sinai Hospital reported three ER visits. And there is also the matter of the vendors themselves following the rules. On July 12, the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, which oversees the pilot, announced that it issued a total of 14 citations to six vendors for, among other things, failure to limit the scooters’ speed to 15 miles per hour, failure to respond to customer concerns. Lime was among the three vendors not issued a citation. Under the pilot program, the scooters can only be operated from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The vendors have to take them off the street and store them overnight. While riders need a smartphone app and a credit or debit car to rent escooters, vendors are required to provide alternatives for people who don’t have either. According to Lime’s press release, the company has so far held 12 First Ride Academy events throughout the West Side. Zerlina Smith, a former 29th ward aldermanic candidate who handles community events for the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago, said

that Lime took part in several of her organization’s “Light the Night” events. She explained that the events are designed to bring positive experiences to the community. “Lime is working with the same population we are,” Smith said. “As residents come to Light the Night events, they know they can ride scooters whenever they leave the block.” Lime held its West Humboldt Park event on Aug. 7 at 1634 N. Pulaski Rd. The company partnered with the Business Technology Education Center, 3942 W. North Ave. As BTEC President Xavier Hernandez explained, his organization aims to “build community through STEM education,” offering classes in areas like 3D printing, coding, media production and food science. Hernandez said that his organization partnered with Lime, giving them a place to store and recharge scooters overnight while giving the students a chance to study the science behind e-scooters. Hernandez noted

with pride that one of their interns, Damani Lozano, developed a smartphone app that puts the apps of all 10 pilot program vendors in one place, significantly simplifying the registration and booking process. Overall, around 20 people wound up trying the scooters during the Aug. 7 event. Cesar Cardona, Lime’s community expansion manager, explained that Lime scooters rent for $1 plus $0.15 for every mile it’s ridden. Like bikes, they must be ridden on (not the sidewalks) and helmets are strongly recommended, he said. “Part of our mission is that there are a lot of people who haven’t tried our e-scooters yet, so we wanted to give them an opportunity to ride them,” Cardona said. “So, when they ride the scooters, they feel comfortable and they don’t get into an accident.” Nicole Brown, of Austin, works as a peer support specialist at Rincon Family Services’ West Humboldt Park location, which is located within walking distance of the dem-

onstration site. She is one of the several company employees who decided to take part. “I was actually scared of trying,” Brown said. “But once you get the hang of it, it’s really fun.” Daythan Delvalle, an instructor at BTEC, said that the scooter worked well for what it was. “It was good,” he said. “It was fast. It was liberating and it was fun.” Dino Lozano, Damani Lozano’s mother, got off of her scooter early. “I felt good going forward, but I felt like turning was a little too much,” she said. “A third wheel on a scooter would be good.” Later, she was persuaded to give it another go and said that she felt a little more comfortable. Spin, another e-scooter vendor, is holding demonstrations on Aug. 14, 4:30 p,m., at the Hatchery, 135 N. Kedzie Ave., and on Aug. 20, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at 5820 W.

Founded in Hyde Park in direct response to the Civil Rights Movement in 1956, CCC has grown from one choir into a vast network of in-school and after-school programs driven by one mission: to inspire and change lives through music. Its neighborhood and in-school choirs have been teaching students at all skill levels proper vocal technique, music reading and sight singing skills, and the discipline of singing with musicality, movement and expression. But students who sing with the choir learn more than how to read notes on a page. The choir aims to unite diverse youth and create global citizens.

St. Angela students learn to be active citizens and leaders in our community and the world he boys and girls of St. Angela School, located in the northwest corner of the Austin neighborhood, begin their days with this pledge: I am a St. Angela scholar. I am a respectful individual. I am a person for others. I am a responsible citizen. I am an independent learner. I am a faith-filled individual. These are the goals that we have for our scholars—the goals their parents have in mind for them when they choose St. Angela. These, and the overarching goal of learning to be successful in school. Early success in school— learning to love learning—is the foundation of a rich and rewarding life.

T

The St. Angela experience is designed for success, from preschool through eighth grade. Dedicated teachers at St. Angela work together closely and invite parents to collaborate with them in meeting the needs of each student. Children who require special support for reading, or study practices, or developing fine motor skills, find that support in our staff and volunteers. Our gym teacher and our coaches

challenge the children to do their best physically – to be competitive, but first to enjoy being active and to develop confidence in participating. Our art teacher believes passionately that “there is no bad art!” Our early childhood staff believes that all children can learn, that mistakes are part of the process, and that each day is a new beginning. Each one of us believes that each day should include the joy and gratitude that are part of a faith-based curriculum.

proud to be in Austin!

We believe that the children of St. Angela deserve the same opportunities, the same incitement to curiosity, the same care and nurturing that children everywhere deserve. To that end, our strong old buildings have received much TLC in the past four years: a renovated gym, new classroom windows, and a wonderful new green campus which includes fields, gardens, quiet spaces for reading and prayer, trees for shade and two outdoor classrooms. We believe that “place matters” and therefore we continue to enhance the place we call home. We’re

Our Centennial Year will begin with a Mass on Sunday, September 8 at 10:00 in the Jack Jordan Gym on our campus, Msgr. Ken Velo, celebrant. Before and after the Mass friends and alumni will be welcome to tour the school and the grounds. All our welcome to honor our past and salute the future of St. Angela.

We were founded in Austin in 1920, so this fall we will open our doors for the 100th time! A momentous event. Not many Catholic schools are marking this anniversary anymore, certainly not many that have faced the hurdles that St. Angela School has faced in the last 25 years. How fortunate we are to have faced those hurdles with friends, alumni and families who believe in our mission in the Austin neighborhood!

Cluster Tutoring’s mission is to help students realize their potential through the power of learning in an environment that strengthens the student, the tutor, and the community. Cluster is a nonprofit, communitybased organization that provides tutoring to more than 100 students in grades K-12. The program was founded in 1990 by a “cluster” of local churches and community groups in response to the statistic that less than half of Chicago Public School students graduate from high school. Now, all of our seniors graduate from high school and have college acceptances. Each tutor is matched with a student, and each tutor-student pair works together from late September through mid-May. Tutoring is held from 6:30-8 p.m. on either Tuesday or Thursday. The program has a focus on literacy

Math coaches also are on hand for students who need extra help.

Cluster Tutoring provides FREE one-to-one tutoring from late September to mid-May. Priority enrollment goes to students from Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. Come to either session for an orientation and to register your child.

Academy of Scholastic Achievement (ASA): Accepting Students Just as They Are Since 1978 t all started with 8 full-time teachers and 85 students in the basement of a Catholic church in West Garfield Park. One year later, the school’s roof collapsed in the Chicago blizzard of 1979 and ASA found temporary shelter at Mars Hill Baptist Church in Austin, before relocating to the historic Hamlin House building in West Garfield Park.

I

ASA operated for four years in the Louis Armstrong Elementary School in Austin, before relocating to its current site at 4651 W. Madison Street. Under the direction of its founder and CEO, Gladys Simpson (see photo) ASA operates as a public, charter high school, serving nearly 200 students. ASA offers academic, extra-curricular and socialemotional programs in a 19,000-square foot building featuring nine classrooms, including a state-of-the-art science lab, a 24-seat computer lab, and a high-tech collaborative learning room. ASA’s mission is to accept students where they are academically, socially and

emotionally by educating, supporting, celebrating and empowering students to achieve a higher quality of life. ASA’s educational approach is holistic, a belief that a student can succeed in life only through academic as well as socialemotional support. With a staff of case managers and certified counselors, ASA offers wraparound services focused on individuals and families; employment training for students who are wards of the state; dropout prevention; and parenting services for teen mothers at risk of dropping out of school. This approach works. ASA graduates 80% of its students each year and they go on to college and careers and lives as productive young adults. Because ASA students come primarily from the west side of Chicago, high unemployment and incarceration rates are part of the reality they face each day. ASA teaches them how to navigate their present reality and prepare themselves for futures beyond their current limits.

As part of its efforts, ASA students learn anti-violence strategies in peace circles and participate fully in civic engagement projects. This past year, students worked on a project on environmental injustice that earned second prize in the competition. Alumni come back to visit ASA to tell about their careers in the military, traveling the world and learning new skills, or in further educational pursuits at colleges and universities throughout the nation. With its dedicated, certified staff, ASA works hard to re-engage students academically, socially and intellectually, so they can earn their diplomas and gain the life-skills necessary to compete in society. It’s no mistake that the school motto is unwrap the gift, unveil the potential. That’s because at ASA, we’re helping our students unwrap their inner gifts and unveil their true potential one child and one day at a time.
