Currently we are running a Parent Organizing cohort. If you are a parent who has been involved with the foster care system either as a child or as a parent, please contact us!


Our next Youth Cohort will open in Winter 2018.

Black on Both Sides’ leadership cohort is for Black youth in the Chicagoland area who have had contact with DCFS or foster care. If you have questions or would like to talk it through with someone, please reach out to us at 

Past Cohorts have created zines, designed and led workshops, launched organizing campaigns, recorded videos, and more!
