Free School Supplies! Free Food! Free Resource Tables! Free Entertainment! Free FUN!

#TheTakeBack is a peace promoting 501 C3 organization geared towards the youth of Chicago’s South Side. Our annual back-to-school festival provides school supplies and a meal for more than 400 youth. Since 2014, we have provided more than 1,700 youth with resources to fuel active play, begin the school year prepared, and enjoy a day of peaceful fun in an encouraging environment.

"By providing a safe and encouraging environment for youth to participate in active play, obtain resources and cultivate relationships, we hope to foster a mindset of peace & happiness that will prevent violent activity. "

With parterships, donations and support from Viacom, BET Networks, The Community Builders, The Ellis Park Advisory Council, Bai Brand Beverages, Gift of Hope, Big Brothers, Big Sister of Metro Chicago,Power 92.3, 107.5 WGCI, FOX 32 News, WGN Radio, The University of Chicago, The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), Chicago Urban League, What's the Word TV, Chicago Youth Opportunities Initiative and other local organizations, #TheTakeBack showcased an array of positive encouragement, safe activities and endless fun for the community affectionately known as "The Low End" in Chicago.

#TheTakeBack 2018 will focus on expanding our efforts to influence more youth positively. In addition to organizing another peaceful day for the youth of Chicago, #TheTakeBack will provide school supplies for each attendee, award larger scholarships to more children, increase awareness across all platforms & acquire more sponsorship through various networks.
