Sprint® For Chicago Supports Youth Guidance’s Working on Womanhood Program With 100 Chicago Sky WNBA Tickets and Dinner

Community support and investments are part of Sprint for Chicago
initiative

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sprint
and Youth
Guidance
kick off the school year tonight by taking 100 Working
on Womanhood
members and staff to a Chicago Sky WNBA game and dinner.


For 90 years, Youth Guidance has served inner-city areas where the
challenges of community violence and academic failure among youth are
greatest. The agency operates in 80 Chicago public schools
and directly served more than 8,000 youth in the 2014-2015 school
year. Working on Womanhood (W.O.W.) is one of Youth Guidance’s
school-based programs, which supports at-risk girls in grades 7-12
through counseling, mentoring, character development, and educational
enrichment.

“W.O.W. creates a unique environment for young women to build
unbreakable bonds amongst each other,” said Tracy Nolan, Sprint
president and general manager of Illinois and Wisconsin. “I am honored
to support Youth Guidance and am excited to continue investing in
similar programs.”

In addition to the Chicago Sky WNBA game and dinner, Sheryl Swoopes,
head coach of the women’s basketball team at Loyola University and WNBA
legend, will join as Sprint’s dinner guest. Swoopes is a four-time WNBA
champion, NCAA champion and three-time Olympic gold medalist.

“We thank Sprint for their support and generosity,” said Michelle
Morrison, Youth Guidance CEO. “These types of donations mean the world
to Chicago youth, and we are fortunate to have Sprint as our new
partner.”

Youth Guidance is a non-profit organization that relies on the support
and collaboration of partners to achieve their goals. For more
