The fun happens every Friday!

Our new FREE teen friendly initiative, Summer Kickback Series, is the latest offering of My CHI My Future (MCMF), the City’s effort to connect Chicago’s youth with safe and engaging spaces throughout 15 communities across the south and west sides.  These weekly teen hangouts include various activities, games, food, and more.
