This nonprofit organization remains visible in the Englewood community. they offer so many activities for our youth. they work with the parents and other community minded citizens to encourage the youth of Englewood to engage in positive play,and social interaction. At their events they are able to include something for everyone. one outdoor activity in the park this summer included face painting for the little ones, "rap"music for the teenagers and gospel, inspirational singing for the not so young. A good time was had by all!! TPP is a great asset to the community and I hope will continue to be visible yesterday, today and tomorrow.

They reach out to the youth in the community by affording them the opportunity, setting, and venue to express themselves in their own way. They project a positive view of life to our young at risk men of color in these wayward streets of inner city Chicago. yet They are also visible to the not so young or more senior persons in our area. They remind them that they are not forgotten and that they are important. What a blessing this organization is. Cudoos to tpp!!!

Totally Positive Productions is a great and fantastic Non Profit Organization. They care about helping youth and young adults create a brighter future. They have wonderful field trips which are also educational and cultural. It's so important to have this resource for children today because it's so easy to slip through the cracks and these people really care about SUCCESS for the future in our youth. They also do wonderful community events and fundraisers. They've had nothing but positive feedback and comments from those who have been involved in making their events a huge success. They also give tools for the young adults in the working world and also do service workshops. This is a wonderful place to be at!

We participated in TPP's 'Safe Summer Kick-Off' and it was a blast! We're an organization that brings kindness to children in the form of Disney characters and crafts, games, etc. and we've been to many different events... however the hospitality and the generosity of both TPP and Taj Jones was amazing. They asked us prior to the event what we needed, and provided us with everything we could ask for, and more! It was a hot day and we were put in the shade... given both food and water, and were constantly thanked by all of their members for coming. We definitely look forward to planning more events with them! -Spread the Magic, 2018
