Bronzeville Fusion Network

The Digital Youth Network at DePaul University (DYN) and Little Black Pearl (LBP), in collaboration with CPS’s Office of Leadership and Learning have launched the Bronzeville Fusion Network (BFN), a living lab designed to deepen our collective understanding as to how to strengthen the STEAM learning ecosystem for youth and families of Chicago’s Bronzeville community. Specifically, the BFN seeks to bring together schools in Bronzeville, local informal learning organizations, and families to understand and address the barriers limiting Bronzeville’s youth participation in STEAM learning experiences both in and out of school
