Teens in the HHW Vocal Arts Ensemble perform at the Daley Center Plaza.
Close to 200,000 teens call Chicago their home. These teens are at the core of everything After School Matters does.
These choices include what to do with their time once the school day is done, or even whether to go to school in the first place. The choices each teen makes throughout the day determines what type of person they will become – what kind of student, friend, family member, neighbor – and what role they will play in the future of this city and our society. That’s a lot of responsibility on top of the many challenges our teens face every day.
