Thank you for being a part of our community. As we all work to make sense of how our lives and communities are being reshaped, know that Umoja remains strong. During these extraordinary times, it has never been more crucial for us to respond with those most impacted at the center. We have always committed to centering students, at all costs. Our next steps are no different.

Your connection to us allows us to innovate in these extraordinary times. Your investment in us allows us to invest in our school partners in Chicago and across the nation. 


Umoja builds deep social-emotional learning (SEL) skills in educators to transform the ways young people experience school and the ways schools exist to serve society.
