Youth Programming Endowment


This endowment sustains and enhances the Park District's ability to offer free and low cost recreation programs in the neighborhoods directly to the children who need organized activities the most. These programs keep young people busy during non-school times with physical activities and helps them interact with peers and establish positive relationships.
