Civic & Leadership Development

We are committed to empowering underserved communities through accountability mentorship, working to ensure south side communities serve as a safe living and working environment for individuals to thrive.  Here are a few of our initiatives to empower the community through Workforce Development

Save Our Streets (S.O.S.)

The Envision Community Service (ECS), Gang Intervention, Save Our Streets (S.O.S.) program is committed to empowering the Brighton Park community and the surrounding neighborhoods with safety awareness and resources to improve the quality of life. Funded by the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), ECS is determined to address poverty while combating gun/gang violence throughout the Brighton Park community!


Youth Action Council (YAC)

YAC is a youth sports program. Administered in the Chicago Parks, YAC provides support to youth who are ready to be involved in their community and want to connect with other youth. The purpose of this initiative is to give all the youth including the LGBTQ+ community a voice to speak on their community, including needs and making a change while having fun playing volleyball, soccer, and more.
