expand your neighborhood in Chicago

The third-largest city in the U.S., Chicago is full of need. Through our local partnerships, students will learn how the church is responding to these needs in very real ways. 

Through our local partnerships, students will learn how the church is helping alleviate poverty in Chicagoland neighborhoods.

Your students will also kayak the downtown Chicago River, hike through the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve, or dive into Lake Michigan during an afternoon at the beach.
