Onward Neighborhood House, a nonprofit organization in Chicago’s Belmont Cragin neighborhood, is launching a new entrepreneurship program to provide local youth and adults with the tools they need to start a business.
The 2018 Onward Update Spring Newsletter is out, featuring our cover story about Kaylee — and how she became confident and successful in the classroom!
When Kaylee started in the School Age program at Onward Neighborhood House, she was having trouble in her 4th-grade classes.
Onward House is proud to announce that we have secured three important accreditations from leading non-profit accountability organizations! Since February, Onward has earned the Gold Circle of Quality from ExceleRate Illinois, the gold-level seal of transparency from Guidestar, and a reaccreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Onward House is very excited to launch The Lab — a business incubator developed through our partnership with INCubator.edu. In February we took our first big step by onboarding our business incubator specialist, Sophia Cabido.
