YIPEE SUMMER 2017

Block Club Federation (BCF) began as a group of people interested in organizing block clubs in the Humboldt Park community to raise awareness and unity. Today, we are an umbrella to several block clubs in Humboldt Park and youth programs, such as YIPEE (Youth Innovative Program: Environmental Education).


BCF is a non profit 501 c (3) organization that runs all of its programming with minimal city funding plus fundraisers. Our funding is based on providing services to 20 children per each of our two sites, but how could we turn away so many participants... instead, we serve 40 children at each site, each summer. Did I mention we celebrated 10 years of service last year?!! Anyway, by the time we're done with the summer session, funds are nearly nonexistent for our Winter session.  So we're always fundraising and accepting donations ;)

Thank you, in advance, for your generosity and support!
