South Shore Drill Team uses performing arts to engage inner-city youth throughout their critical teenage years, mitigate the dangers of gangs, drugs, & violence, and guide members towards completing their education and becoming responsible citizens.
What We Do
In addition to performing arts, the team offers education support, employment training, leadership development, court diversion, and financial assistance. This holistic approach to guiding teens has resulted in our youth always having a higher graduation rate then fellow students at CPS schools, and they have achieved 100% graduation since 2012. Most go on to college, and alumni include teachers, police officers and firefighters, lawyers, business managers, and medical professionals.
