Jordan Brand WINGS



Chicago youth face challenges around every corner, from dangerous school pathways and a lack of resources to gang activity and living in the most violent neighborhoods in the country.That’s why WINGS was born: to give Chicago youth a platform to succeed.

WINGS is a partnership program between Jordan Brand and Triple Threat Mentoring for 300 students at 6 schools on the south and west sides of Chicago. The year-long community impact initiative aims to empower at-risk youth to help them dream, pursue and achieve greatness.


6 SCHOOLS. 1 CITY. 1 GOAL.

To show Chicago youth EVERYONE CAN FLY
