We support our mission through social and volunteer recruitment events, fundraisers, and service projects. The board meets monthly to plan such events that support our students and organization. We are actively recruiting dynamic young professionals to help us increase awareness and raise funds for Horizons for Youth. If you are interested in joining the Young Professionals Board, please contact our Recruitment Chair, Joe Docter, at J.firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you love professional football or just want to have some fun, the NFL Survival Pool is a perfect way to bid farewell to summer and say hello to fall! A $25 donation to Horizons for Youth gives you the opportunity to choose a different winning team every week of the season until your selected team loses. It’s easy and enjoyable, and the winner will receive a $500 prize! Regardless of how well you fare in the NFL Survival Pool, you have the opportunity to meet other participants and Horizons for Youth supporters at a game-watching party on Thursday, September 28, 2017. Come watch the Bears take on the rival Green Bay Packers at Zella Chicago. To participate in the Survivor Pool and/or purchase your ticket to the Game Watch, please click HERE.
Save the date! The YPB Bowl-a-thon is a fun-filled afternoon event, and participation is easy. Find a team (or let us connect you with a team) and raise money to help support Horizons for Youth families during the holiday season. Unlimited pizza and beverages are available to keep you well fueled and focused on knocking down those 10 pins!
The best way to distract yourself from Chicago’s never-ending winter is to get completely obsessed with the NCAA college basketball tournament, where early-round upsets and last-second victories keep you on the edge of your seat. Our March Madness Bracket fundraiser allows you to test your basketball knowledge and give back to the community at the same time. This year, we will be adding a special 3-on-3 basketball tournament giving you and your friends an opportunity to tip off against other Horizons for Youth supporters! More information will be available in early 2018.
