Chicago Public Schools

This week we have repeat visitors from the Chicago Public Schools volunteering at both our South Salcedo and 10th Street work sites. They’re rotating groups between going out and having fun in New Orleans and getting down to business at YRNO–not to suggest that we’re not fun too, of course! We’ve got visual evidence–and some humorous captions–below.
