About ConTextos Chicago
Where We Work
We aim to nourish the minds, expand the voices and share the personal truths of individuals who have long been underserved and underestimated. We work with the institutions and individuals that also reach these populations that we prioritize.
Sites of Incarceration and Detention
We work with juveniles and adults who are awaiting trial and accused of, or have been sentenced for violent offenses.
Community-Based Organizations and Workforce Development
Reaching young people and young-at-heart from Englewood, Gage Park, Roseland/Pullman, Brighton Park, North Lawndale, West Humboldt Park, Garfield Park, Auburn-Gresham, and Austin currently on probation, house arrest, just leaving jail or prison, or at elevated risk of violence involvement.
In schools, we provide direct implementation and focus on teacher training to ensure sustainability of best-practices that lift up all voices.
