What does it mean to Pursue Unity?

At Pursue Scholars, what it means to “Pursue Unity” is to holistically invest in the leaders of tomorrow that will unify us!

We believe that the scholars we have the privilege to serve and support are critical to binding the wounds of division that have been so aggravated by recent events in our city and in our nation.

To symbolize this, on September 26th -- Solomon Dixon, The Act Six Coordinator at Pursue Scholars, will undertake a symbolic walk across the entire city of Chicago in order to raise funds for these scholars. He will travers the entire 24 miles of the historic Western avenue, beginning at 119th st on the South Side and ending at Howard St on the North Side! This walk symbolizes that though we are diverse and often segregated, that we are One Chicago and that there is greatness and beauty no matter where you find your feet.

“Pursue Unity is a physical endeavour with the goal of promoting oneness and healing in light of COVID-19, social unrest, and the pervading divisions that persist in our city and in our world. Our hope with the Pursue Unity project is to raise funds to provide critical mental health and leadership resources to the scholars we serve.  ”

Pursue Unity Mission Statement
Our Goal : $50,000 -- This will help fund the following initiatives:

College Scholarships

More incremental scholarships for our Daniel Scholars that persist toward graduation. The scholarship amounts vary from $500 - $5000 scholarships for each of our Daniel Scholars

Leadership Development and ReFresh Retreats

From networking to learning how to rest well, these retreats have versatile themes that assist our scholars in their development as whole leaders.

Scholar Mental Health Resources

Funds raised will be used to create resources like community panels that will be available to our scholars and their families,as well as contracted mental health professionals that will be available to meet with our scholars.

Act Six Leadership Development Staff

We desire to add an additional staff member that will aid in the recruitment, selection, training and support of our Act Six Scholars who are receiving full scholarships to our partner institution, Taylor University.
