After School Matters


On Tuesday September 23rd, HBK participated in the annual After School Matters Gala. Hosted at Chicago’s Historic Navy Pier- Grand Ballroom, HBK along with other sponsors gathered for a great reception and teen gallery, as well as teen performances.

After School Matters® is a non-profit organization that offers Chicago high school teens innovative out-of-school activities through Science, Sports, Tech, Words and the nationally recognized Gallery programs. The After School Matters Annual Gala celebrates the incredible work of teen apprentices while raising important revenue to continue providing over 22,000 program opportunities each year to well-deserving teens throughout Chicago. Funds raised through the event will support general operating costs to provide youth opportunities in arts, communications, science, sports, and technology.
