If the 826 team can do more to promote creativity opportunities for kids, I don't know what that is. Through March 31, 826CHI is hosting "This City is Our Home: Photographs, Essays and Paintings by Homeless Youth in Chicago." The exhibition, which is the result of Blue Sky Inn volunteers' weekly visits to homeless youths, is viewable during tutoring hours, Monday-Thursday 3-5:30pm. Call 773-710-7346 to find out how you can offer your time.
