Chicago Beyond wanted to invest substantially in improving the education and safety of Chicago youth. But the organization needed help designing its program, assembling the right people to lead, scaling the plan, and measuring the effectiveness of the effort.
BCG designed a comprehensive strategy that helped Chicago Beyond incubate its organization. The team developed long-term planning, grant making, organizational structure, partnership strategy, publicity, and tech support.
Chicago Beyond is now armed with a comprehensive strategy and organizational structure that enables it to scale innovative programs to benefit young Chicagoans. The organization has formed an important partnership with University of Chicago Urban Labs that will allow partner organizations to better understand what works and why—and this will ensure that they can scale and improve their programs over time.
Chicago Beyond’s ongoing strategy is to further public and philanthropic investments in work that does the most good to improve the lives of young people.
Chicago Beyond works to help the young people of Chicago fully realize their potential. The organization supports innovative programs that improve education and increase safety for young Chicagoans while also investing in research to allow partner organizations to better understand what programs work and why. BCG has assisted Chicago Beyond with long-term planning, grant making, organizational structure, and partnership strategy.
