A summer of inspiration, a lifetime of change

Farther Foundation made it possible for seventeen eager and deserving students to travel across the country and around the world this past summer. More than ever we are convinced that educational travel is singular in its ability to open the eyes and unbind the aspirations of students whose experiences rarely escape the boundaries of their own neighborhoods. Every year we collect some of the photos and stories they shared with us so that we can share them with you. Click here to see our annual yearbook – Reflections, 2012.

Farther Foundation works with students from some of the most isolated and economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in and around Chicago. Life can be hard for these students. Opportunities are rare and outcomes are often bleak. Over the past four years, Farther Foundation has assisted more than 60 high school students; 100% of those who are age-eligible have graduated high school, 95% continued immediately into college and 98% continue to be enrolled today.
