ON A MISSION TO ELEVATE THE VOICES AND EXPERIENCES OF AMERICA'S KIDS.



In 2021, we built

Once Upon Our Time Capsule

to elevate the experiences and stories of Chicago's kids during the pandemic.


Thousands of kids contributed their stories to a citywide youth-led time capsule...








The time capsule inspired kids, and proved to be a valuable tool to help kids reflect on and share their stories.


We are now working to expand the program ... across America. In doing so, we will help kids build a strong sense of self and community.






*in a twist on the traditional time capsule, this one will not be buried, but will be open for ongoing discovery, learning and conversation.
