“I do want to personally thank you for planning and coordinating our activities for our “AWE-SOME” girls’ visit in June.” It had a more cultural flair instead of all the customary tourism activities. I hope our “AWE-SOME” girls will catch your entrepreneur spirit.

It’s important for children to understand history, especially history that they might not be familiar with or that relates specifically to them. Of course, they need a healthy dose of entertainment to help the education go down. Our Soul Side of the Windy City Tour combines important historical and cultural sites like the DuSable Museum, Defender Newspaper, the Ebony and Jet Magazine, Monument to the Great Migration and Jesse Owens’ grave site, Michael Jordan’s statue, and Oprah Winfrey’s studio. We also leave time for the young ladies to go shopping and the young men to play video games. Food? Of course! We have a couple of phenomenal Black establishments in our hip pocket that you can’t miss.

Special Programming

The Practicum on Black history in Chicago and specially developed long-distance tours have helped scouts achieve credits toward badge requirements. Our Niagara Falls tour helped two Girl Scouts from Troop 1570 achieve their Golden Award—the highest award in Girl Scouting!

Our services have also been utilized by city and state youth organizations, DHS and other federally funded youth programs, YMCAs, YWCAs, Park Districts, Summer Camps, Child-Parent Center, Public & Private Schools, Federally-funded Youth Programs, and Trio Programs.
