Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks at Hamilton Park

Back by citywide demand! Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks returns this summer and brings William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, FREE FOR ALL, to 18 neighborhood parks across Chicago. As in previous years, a specially equipped truck will roll into each park, a stage will unfold, and a company of professional actors will share the delight of Shakespeare with families and neighbors of all ages. In this popular Shakespearean comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a gaggle of hapless actors and mischievous sprites cross paths with the king and queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a wondrous wood brimming with paramours and possibilities where the inexplicable magic of falling in love—and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams—is discovered. Director David H. Bell has adapted this Shakespeare favorite into an acrobatic and riotously entertaining version of the play. - See more at:

One Summer Chicago Plus

Hi, my name is Tony Robinson and I'm a mentee in the OSC plus at the Peace Community Center and my mentor is Ms. Chyrisse Dunnorm. She has helped me to learn many life lessons. First, I learned about the importance of balancing work, school, and family to your advantage so you can succeed in life the best way possible. Secondly, I learned what integrity meant and I learned that You can be in integrity by saying u will do something and actually following through with it. Next, I learned what resiliance was and how resiliance is used at all times and that some times you are resiliant without even knowing it. Then, I learned what it meant to be a man and I found out my self that manhood is a hard thing to obtain, the knowledge we learn every day helps us young men to become men. Lastly, just recently I learned what responsibility truly is and I fell as though I have become a very responsible young man and I have learned that responsibility is a big part in becoming a man. We also went on trips as a plus we went to the Taste of Chicago, Millineum Park and more. We also were involved in a program to feed people that wanted food or may have needed. In conclusion this has been a great experience and i have learned lots about what it means to become an adult and I'm grateful I got the chance to be apart of this program.

Greencorps Youth Receive Introduction to Yoga

Greencorps Youth at Team Englewood learned that yoga is not only good for your body, it's great for your mind!  Deep breathing techniques were stressed during Thursday's yoga session with Tameka Lawson from iGrow Chicago.  Students learned that while one cannot control the body's immediate physical reaction to stressful situations, focusing on deep breathing can help control the emotional response.  The session, while brief, was very informative and the response was overwhelmingly positive.   Thanks, Tameka!!

The Amazing Race

Friday, July 11 proved to be a day of fun and friendship for students in the Greencorps Youth program.  The morning session, led by mentors Charles and Bettie, went on a scavenger hunt in and around the school.  Faced with tasks such as getting a staff member to do the "D Low Shuffle" (and filming it!), recreating a scene from the movie "Titanic" and taking a selfie in front of the Eiffel Tower, some early hesitation quickly made way for excitement and an urgency to get the race going.  Six teams of two took off for an hour with strict instructions to complete all ten tasks on school grounds.  Jonnas and Mary were the winners, ten minutes ahead of the next group.  After reconvening, students shared their videos and pictures.  With the goal of creating unity, teamwork and making new friends, as well as thinking creatively and generally "outside the box", the activity was a clear success and will be repeated before the program ends on August 8.
