2014 Work to Play serves over 1000 students. The Work to Play program has consistently grown throughout the years. Check out our growth by the numbers and how our uniforms have changed in the last fifteen years!
2014 sends their first cohort to UI National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Urban Initiatives seeks not only to impact our participants through our programming but also to connect our participants to other experiences and resources to enrich their learning. In 2014, we sent our first cohort of students to the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS)- a two-week wilderness expedition that teaches leadership through uncertainty. NOLS is one of many summer opportunities afforded to high performing Take the Lead (5-8th grade) and Coach for Success (9th-12th grade) students. Our participants travel across the country for opportunities like NOLS, the National Student Leadership Conference, the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy, and more!
