Join us in recognizing Chicago’s American Graduate Champions!

An American Graduate Champion commits his or her time, skills and resources to make sure that young people succeed. He or she is an individual who plays an active role in improving educational outcomes for students. Champions are parents, students, teachers, community leaders, and volunteers who are dedicated to creating positive environments for youth in their community.

These Chicagoans go above and beyond to help a student, classroom, or community succeed – setting high expectations, building and finding effective supports, and helping a student or school make the successful journey from preschool to high school graduation.
