I Am We is a 501(c)(3) arts organization that was founded in 2011 by a group of artists, educators, and other professionals who are passionate about creating a city that works for all citizens, including adolescent youth and teens living in economically deprived communities. Before launching any programs or initiatives, we asked ourselves as an organization, “What would Chicago look like if it was united?” From that question, we created the mission of I Am We: building meaningful connections between youth and community through the arts, mentorships, advocacy, and programming.
