Our Altgeld 10 youth went backstage at WE Day!

Members of the Altgeld 10, a group of students in our Calumet Center’s Youth Leadership Program, took part recently in the WE Movement’s WE Day, a celebration of kids across Illinois committed to giving back to their communities!

Thanks to ABC 7 Chicago and Metropolitan Board Member Diana Palomar, our students joined with thousands of youth to celebrate a year of action.

Before the event, which featured performances and speakers recognizing all the students’ hard work during the school year, our youth enjoyed backstage access – including interviews! ABC’s Cheryl Burton caught up with the Altgeld 10 for a Facebook Live video:
