Secure Your Future

It’s not just young people’s education that is at stake. It’s their health, safety, and future. Now, more than ever, it’s essential to listen and learn from them. 

Secure Your Future will provide an opportunity for young women, girls, trans, and gender nonbinary individuals ages 13-24 from across Chicago to share their concerns and ask questions to our panelists on education during the pandemic.
