Generation All

Chicagoans United. Education Transformed.


The Generation All initiative has come to a close. Thanks to everyone who partnered with Generation All in changing the narrative about public education in Chicago and supporting and advocating for neighborhood public high schools and their students.

Generation All launched in 2014 as a citywide initiative to unite communities and Chicago as a whole in creating a plan to ensure top-quality neighborhood public high schools that support students’ personal development and learning, both in and out of the classroom. Generation All’s work centered on a collaborative, one-year planning process to develop a bold, community-owned plan that equips all neighborhood high schools with the tools, resources and spaces necessary for students to graduate, prepared for life and college or careers. Generation All’s work came to an end in spring 2019.

Generation All was an initiative of The Chicago Community Trust, with funding from the Ford Foundation through its More and Better Learning Time initiative, and was founded in partnership with Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU).

A selection of Generation All resources, including the Generation All plan “Strong Neighborhood High Schools for a Stronger Chicago,” is available on the @ILRaiseYourHand website. The initiative’s Twitter and Facebook accounts will be inactive, but available as archived accounts.
