When & Where
Future Founders Foundation
The Future Founders Foundation is a non-profit organization that inspires low-income youth in Chicago to explore new career opportunities. We offer programs to connect students with mentors from various professions and provide engaging project-based learning experiences for 2nd through 12th graders. From 2005-13, our programs served 16,500 students. This year, we are serving over 6,000 students at 50 schools.
Our organization was created in 2011 through the merger of Future Founders, the youth entrepreneurship program founded by the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center (CEC) in 2005 and Connect to the Future, the career exposure program that Lightbank Co-Founder Brad Keywell launched in 2006. In 2013, we launched Lemonade Day Chicago to encourage elementary and middle school students to experience entrepreneurship first-hand.
Join us as we empower the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs.
