Stand UP Chicago: Update

Dear Friends and Family,

It’s been an outstanding trip here at Stand UP Chicago!

From our first week and a half in Evanston to our last four nights in UIC’s dorms in downtown Chicago, these teens have grown and learned so much in such a short amount of time. We have truly created a family here in Chicago, and we are all so sad to go home tomorrow. We have heard amazing speakers, seen incredible views, and experienced things that could not have been experienced anywhere other than this program.

The teens were split up into seven teams and were put in charge of creating a product or company that keeps on track with their topic, and they have been doing a great job. These teens have bright futures as social entrepreneurs, and I am very confident in their futures ahead of them!

My very best,
Melissa
