Chicago Childrens Choir

Founded in 1956 as a direct response to the Civil Rights Movement, Chicago Children’s Choir is rooted in the belief that music is a vehicle for fostering empathy and respect between young people of all races, ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, gender identities, and sexual orientations.

Since its founding 65 years ago, CCC has grown from a single choir into a vast network of school and after-school programs that serve thousands of students every year. The Choir offers a performance-based learning experience built around innovative creative partnerships and compelling artistic endeavors—from regular appearances at Lyric Opera and Ravinia Festival to one-of-a-kind features on major recording projects like Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book (2016) and The Big Day (2019).

For more than half a century, CCC has developed programs that embrace the racial and economic diversity of Chicago, making a high-caliber musical education available to any singer who wants it. Accessibility forms the foundation of our signature world-class instruction. Eighty percent of our youth live in low-to-moderate income households, and every year these 4,000+ students participate completely free of charge. Whether they’re just getting started or are already seasoned performers, youth from every corner of the city discover how to make their voice heard through our empowering programs.

New Incentives

New Incentives’ All Babies program operates in North West Nigeria (Jigawa, Katsina, and Zamfara states), a remote, poor region with one of the lowest childhood vaccination rates in the world. In partnership with local government partners, we provide small cash transfers to caregivers when their infants receive each of four vaccines: BCG (against tuberculosis), PENTA (against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenzae type b), PCV (against pneumococcal disease), and MCV (against measles). These vaccinations are part of the routine schedule for infant immunizations in Nigeria and are provided at no cost to the caregiver through government supported clinics. In addition, New Incentives addresses other barriers to immunization coverage, supporting partners to increase vaccine supply and increase awareness of the benefits of vaccines. We are constantly using data and evidence to inform our model and our daily operations.
