T G i
TGiMovement is a “By Us For Us” organization. We created TGiMovement because we saw a need amongst our generation. We are divided, especially in Chicago. TGi is our answer. Through TGi we will unite youth throughout Chicago to create a sense of brother/sisterhood and ownership, while providing safe spaces and opportunities for personal growth. In essence TGi will become a support hub through our peer mentoring focusing on goals and social emotional learning.
What TGi Will Offer?
We teach our peers how to be a leader, and how to navigate public life. Leadership development includes; campaign training, 1 to 1s, power analysis, conflict resolution and much more. This will help mold our youth into the leaders of tomorrow. Most importantly these skills will be transferable no matter what path they take in life.
This ties in with peer mentoring. A lot of times our young people join gangs because they want a sense of “family”, a sense of “belonging”. A lot of times youth just need someone to talk to and we do not even have that. TGi will provide peer mentoring, while creating a sense of family through the brother/sisterhoods bonds that will be formed.
A lot of high school students struggle to get services hours for one of two reasons.
1) They are not interested in the programs that their school offers.
2) Under resourced schools / communities do not have the funding to provide the opportunities.
