In local Chicago news, acclaimed actor Michael B. Jordan, known for his roles like Black Panther and Creed, made a surprise appearance at an Englewood school last week. He stopped by Urban Prep Charter Academy For Young Men alongside fellow Creed III actor Jonathan Majors, sharing insight into their acting careers.
Before going on stage to speak, Michael B. Jordan met with a group of young men and visited the After School Matters Peace Maker’s program as they held their Circle Check-in.
The After School Matters program, which is known for working with Chicago Public School kids across the city, seeks to provide Chicago teens with project-based summer programs centering around the arts, communications, and leadership, sports, and STEM. Focusing on ways to engage teens with meaningful after-school programs, the nonprofit offers a wide variety of possibilities to explore from sports to communication and leadership and more. Kids even get paid for their work, as the program aims to help kids develop new skills.
