Regenerating Hope

Resilience, Health, Wellbeing for ALL


One Solution is a Chicago-based, globally active non-profit that works to create a sustainable, thriving, and equitable world by which all individuals realize that beyond the destructive thought systems that persist in today’s society, we are all innately healthy, resilient, and part of one another. We are whole within ourselves, and we are whole as humankind. This realization is what will fuel a better world for future generations. We focus our efforts on unearthing the solutions that lie within all people to improve communities, organizations, and systems...but we couldn’t do it without your help.  

Rebels for Peace is a youth-led initiative, currently being led by Dajohn White and Patrick Jimmar. Rebels for Peace works directly with kids, incarcerated youth, youth leaders, and schools from several communities in Chicago to discover new solutions to violence while offering the education, empowerment, and support to maintain healthier, and more resilient mindsets.

Every day we are working tirelessly to: 

- Re-create a more equitable world by dissolving us vs them mindsets and transforming the systems that perpetuate inequality.
- To unite instead of separate. 
- Promote mental health in underserved communities in an accessible, community-led, and authentic way 
- Create safer communities and disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline by supporting youth, parents, and schools 
- Supporting the next generation to build a better world through youth leadership
- Inspire new thinking to fuel innovation and problem-solving 
- Highlight the interconnectedness of ourselves, our communities, and our world  

In our end-of-year fundraiser, we are fundraising $300,000 to sustain and amplify our effort in 2022.

This Fundraiser is specifically focused on supporting our Community transformation work and the Rebels for Peace. 
$300,000 will allow us to secure a baseline of impact and achieve the following:

  • Work with 5 schools, serving 800 kids and teenagers on Chicago's south side.
  • Train 500 Social Impact Leaders through our 8-week virtual accelerator
  • Sponsor and Develop 100 youth leaders during our 6-week leadership internships
  • Unite youth, parents, those involved in the criminal justice system, and business and civic leaders to find holistic solutions.
