“The Academy for Global Citizenship is a jewel nestled amid urban blight. A nonprofit Chicago public charter school, the Academy for Global Citizenship is making waves in elementary education, working to create a class of scholars that care about their community as much as their grades.” – Jessica Suss for Make it Better Magazine
As the winner of the Make it Better Philanthropy Award for Education, our unique school and vision was featured in an article and video published yesterday on Make It Better. Click here to read the feature article by Jessica Suss.
The feature is acompanied by a video produced by Adam Ruben, founder of SureCan Productions for Make it Better. We were lucky to work with Adam on a video for 2013 Make it Better Philanthropy Award winner, Bernie’s Book Bank. Bernie’s Book Bank brings new and gently used books to students at AGC and dozens of other schools twice a year to fuel active reading habits outside of school.

The feature and video focus on our work with Studio Gang Architects to develop a sustainable school campus that we hope will serve as a model for school construciton in the 21st century. For questions regarding our future campus, contact Katherine.
Now, without further ado, please enjoy this lovely snapshot of our work, featuring our brilliant architects from Studio Gang as well as AGC students, parents, staff, and members of our board.
