Several months ago Ancestors unKnown began an exciting collaboration with Communities in Schools of Chicago (CIS Chicago). As a result, we’re gaining access to elementary and secondary schools in Chicago that are now introducing students to untold histories using the AU Curriculum.
Here’s how CIS Chicago describes their work:
What a wonderful opportunity to partner with an organization that already has its finger on the pulse of a community we care deeply about. And our school partnership numbers have been rising as a result!
In addition to schools in Charleston, Philadelphia and The Netherlands, we’ve added 4 Chicago public schools (and still counting) to our list of partners who are challenging the norms of history education, student identity development, and family history knowledge. And that’s the whole point.
But still, we could use your help to reach more schools in Chicago and other cities. Our potential to reach more students is limited only by our access to funding. With additional funds, we’ll continue to reach more students and enhance the program. Because again – that’s the whole point!
Donate today to provide more young people with the knowledge, resources, and empowerment they need to uncover and proudly share their untold histories.
Because it’s never too late for all of us to rewrite history.
