Umoja Student Development Corporation

Chicago, IL

Overview

Umoja equips young people to succeed in college and confidently claim their future. We do this by building a web of dynamic relationships that brings together schools and communities partner to bridge the gap between the talents and ambitions of low-income youth and the resources they need.

Umoja believes that education is the great equalizer. If we as a community are serious about Chicago standing as a competitive global city, then we must be equally serious about educating each and every one of our young people in every Chicago neighborhood.

Umoja is committed to: a holistic youth-centered model; purposeful relationships with young people; improving adult knowledge and skills as a key lever in increasing student outcomes; thought leadership and support to principals, counselors and teachers; high expectations for students, teachers and administrators; measurable outcomes; recruiting and retaining high quality staff and volunteers; and engaging the business community in support of young people and schools.
