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.

Fostering Hope was established in 2013 to raise awareness of the challenges faced by children within the foster care system and provide opportunities to them while engaging the community in which they reside.
Founders Nicole Shefrin, Jason Shefrin and Jessica Everest, along with Fostering Hope’s volunteers, work to provide foster children with often taken-for-granted experiences that typify most children’s lives, but due to limited financial and volunteer resources are sometimes lacking in the foster care setting.
We are educators. Creators. Researchers. Moms. Dads. Caregivers. Friends. We are a community of 400+ people (plus some amazing partners!) who are passionate about one thing: helping children. We’re present in more than 150 countries, providing almost two hundred million children with access to life-changing early education, critical health lessons, and helpful tools for tough situations. And joy. Lots of joy.
We reach children in their earliest years, when we know we can have the biggest impact. Before age five, a child’s brain grows faster than at any other time, laying the foundation for all the learning, behavior, and physical and mental health to follow. And Sesame is there, helping those young children grow to reach their full potential.
