Welcome to Team Greater Grand Crossing!  We are so excited to work with you this summer!  We are looking forward to a summer full of new opportunities, service learning, and FUN!  We will be partnering with Gary Comer Youth Center and serving their organization, while also working with other organizations in the community.  We can’t wait to meet you and wanted to introduce ourselves!

Hi!  My name is Sang Pil Yoo, but most people call me Alex.  I am a rising 4th year at the College.  I am studying biology and hope to attend medical school after I graduate.  I can assure you the mentor team at Greater Grand Crossing is more than excited to meet you all!  To tell you more about myself, I love to play tennis and sing (I’m in an acappella group on campus).  I also enjoy watching Netflix and Pixar movies).  The staff at the Gary Comer Youth Center have been more than welcoming and the service opportunities in this community are really exciting.  I look forward to meeting you all!  I am excited about the good work we will do over the summer!

Hi, my name is Mariah.  I attend the University of Chicago and study social work.  I’m so excited to work with you all! Since we have been at Gary Comer, we’ve experienced great things.  The facilities are amazing and the people are great.  We have so many great ideas for the summer and we look forward to receiving your input.  We already have a team slogan: “We’re Great, we’re Grand, we’re GREATER GRAND CROSSING!”  We hope to make this summer as memorable as possible and hope you have a great time with us!

Hi, my name is Alli and I am going into my second year at University of Chicago for social work.  I am super excited for this summer and the opportunity to get to work with you all!  I grew up in California, but Chicago has been my home for the past two years.  I love hiking, cooking, and the beach.  I am so excited to be partnering with GCYC this summer – they have been an awesome host site so far, and I think we will have a lot of fun opportunities for service this summer!

Looking forward to having your join our team!
