Youth

Art Club 

 Our Free Art programs are designed to engage youth in learning and community building with a focus on highlighting Latinx culture and celebrating creativity.  

Our annual summer art club went virtual this year. 40 youth ages 5-12 received all of the supplies they needed to follow along with our online art classes. This 4 week program ran twice a week for the entire month of august. 

As a final communal project youth will add to a new mural in Gage Park.

Bike

The Block 

Supplying Gage Park youth with FREE bikes to sustainably and safely commute around Chicago this summer. Access to public space is at the core of our mission at GPLXC. We want to help youth enjoy their community and reclaim their sidewalks as safe places to play and learn while promoting sustainability and an active lifestyle. 

Thank you to Working Bikes for partnering with us on this initative.
