Change The Tune Partnership

The Vituity Cares and Change the Tune Partnership aims to foster the education and social justice leaders of tomorrow.

Our “Model Magic Lab” program will support cohorts of Chicago-based students in longitudinal after-school or summer learning programs through a unique learning model and experiential activities that drive social impact.

The Problem

The current food and education systems have been designed to perpetuate the cycle of poverty in under resourced communities; social determinants of health including racial and socioeconomic status directly impact health outcomes.

The Solution

Utilizing a holistic learning approach to programming that dismantles inequitable systems, and creates equitable change for communities, Change the Tune and Vituity Cares are partnering on a food justice and health equity focused after-school program for Chicago-based youth. This program provides education and mentorship to underserved communities, and directly addresses social determinants of health leading to disparate health outcomes based on race and/or socioeconomic status.
