Pursue Scholars is an urban leadership development nonprofit that invests in emerging leaders from neighborhoods across Chicago to influence lasting impact in our city. We train and inspire young leaders to complete college while also growing as leaders. Pursue Unity is an annual campaign where a group of scholars and supporters walk the entire length of Western Ave. in Chicago to raise funds and awareness for the emerging leaders of Pursue Scholars. We envision our scholars becoming the leaders who will open the channels of understanding that lead to a better future for the communities of Chicago. This 24-mile journey of 197 blocks leads walkers through a diverse landscape of neighborhoods and allows interaction with a wide range of cultures, some of which are home to Pursue Scholars and alumni. Your contributions will help us fund Pursue Unity campaign and support the resources of Pursue Scholars, increased Scholarship dollars, and community enrichment programming. In 2023, we have a goal of raising $200,000. Will you consider a generous donation to invest in these young leaders? DONATE NOW! Join us in pursuing unity by… Listening to those who think differently than you. Walking alongside people from a background that is not your own. Investing in the emerging leaders of Pursue Scholars.
