Chasing23 Youth Empowerment Group
A partnership with Wendell Phillips High School.
In November 2016 Chasing23 Youth Empowerment Group partnered with Wendell Philips High School to mentor 10 students in the Philips Affinity Leadership Program. The Affinity Leadership Program primary purpose is to provide a structured system where students will be able to accomplish 3 goals: • Leadership opportunities, • Community service • Accountability structure
Chasing23 Affinity students were given an opportunity to express their creativity by creating a T-Shirt with life quotes that inspire them to pursue greatness.
This unique approach allowed students to develop their interpersonal and
team-building skills, while gaining entrepreneur and creative production experience.
A portion of the proceeds will go to a scholarship fund for the
Chasing23 Affinity students.
The scholarships will be given to the students at a Chasing bouquet in June 2017.
