The Chicago Gifted Community Center is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by parents of gifted children.
The mission of the Chicago Gifted Community Center is to facilitate educational and emotional support for gifted children and their families. More specifically, we strive to be the hand that gifted children and their families reach out to for a sense of belonging and much needed support. We embrace the difference here. If you're reading this with a sense of longing for community for your quirky child (and yourself) then you'll probably fit in just fine here!
We understand how difficult it can be for gifted kids to find a place where they feel they fit; a place where they can be their authentic selves; where they can be welcomed, accepted and valued for who they really are. We also acknowledge that parenting at its best is a social enterprise, but that parents of gifted children are often mute for fear of not being understood. If you are a family with gifted children, won't you join us in building a supportive gifted community? Click here for more information. Tell me more about membership.
Simply put, we at CGCC aim to facilitate communication and connectedness within the greater gifted community - for parents and children alike. We expect to be a dynamic, ever-changing organization in terms of our support offerings to families of gifted children. Our member-driven community will evolve continually into what its families need in terms of support and events.
CGCC is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all and does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, national origin, religious creed, disability, age, sexual orientation or gender in admission to or participation in its programs, services and activities.
