Our Story

Our Mission

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, families and community partners to bridge the gap between the talents and ambitions of low-income youth and the resources they need to thrive.

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

Engaging the business community in support of young people and schools
