The Otis Wilson Charitable Association, is a non-profit organization, that’s committed to the community it serves, and most importantly, to the children of Chicago. We work to reduce the negative outcomes related to low levels of physical activity, poor nutrition, and illiteracy in the lives of our youth, and increase the positive outcomes that produce lifelong active, healthy individuals. The 55 Alive after school program, dance, martial arts, and sports summer camps are the major program activities we implement throughout the year.
The Otis Wilson Charitable Association is a 501c (3) organization dedicated to providing children with the knowledge and skills needed to adopt active lifestyles. We believe quality physical education programs are needed to increase physical competence, self-esteem and overall health. Our organization is committed to providing such physical education programs to ensure the positive and healthy development of our at risk youth.
