2018 Mikva Challenge Chicago Youth Change Maker Benefit

Thank You for Supporting Our Youth Change Makers!

On April 18, we gathered to honor the winners of the 2018 Youth Change Maker Awards, recognizing Mikva Challenge students, plus a remarkable Mikva alumnus, who are using their voices and personal power to impact their schools and communities.

Mikva Challenge was founded on the simple premise that youth voice and participation matter and that our civic and political life will be stronger when youth participate and shape their own future, as this year’s honorees demonstrate through their words and actions.

Thank you for your partnership in Mikva’s powerful and transformative youth development programs.. We hope you will continue to support this work and invest in the potential of youth to transform their communities and our city.

Congratulations to Our 2018 Honorees:
