In Fall 2017, R CITY launches its Youth Tuckpointing Project, an expansion that will double the size of the organization and transition our youth successfully to career. This program, formerly operated by Harambee Chicago Foundation, trains youth ages 12-18 in the trade skill of tuckpointing. Serving their community, the youth shape their skills by providing services free of charge to low-income homeowners throughout Humboldt Park. The model is patterned after the highly successful work of the Harambee Youth Training programs of Restore St. Louis and is led by Anthony and Michelle Johnson, each with over 9 years of experience in youth tuckpointing training.
Such expansion is only possible with your help. Give here to prepare our youth for lifelong careers!
