Wakanda Forever 10 Cities: Do You Believe Chicago is the City with the Most Heart?

Be a superhero, and join our campaign today!

Go for Yours, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Los Angeles, has selected ten cities to host a private screening of Wakanda Forever. Your donation goes beyond sending underprivileged youth to the movies. We are raising $20,000 in each selected city to give away money in scholarships and send a student to Los Angeles for the 4th annual Dream Experience, a one-week fellowship for the next generation of leaders.

In 2018, we raised over $15,000 to send a student in Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles to a private screening of Black Panther. The remaining proceeds went to help send a young artist and Chicago native, Thelonious Stokes, to the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. He is now the first Black male to graduate from this prestigious university. Your donation helps provide scholarships and supports other talented students like Thelonious.

The Chicago screening will take place during the 4th semi-annual HIS Summit Leadership Summit, a conference that empowers young men from diverse communities and backgrounds. During the HIS Summit, the young men connect to a community of resources that promote leadership, education, and advancement.

The HIS Summit will provide support and resources for these young men to build better futures for themselves.

The city that raises the most money will send not one but two students to the Dream Experience, all expenses paid!! Three students have represented Chicago at the Go for Yours Dream Experience in Los Angeles.
