Be a Sponsor

Corporate Sponsorships

South Shore Drill Team is actively seeking corporate sponsorship. By supporting the Drill Team, companies demonstrate their commitment to improving the lives of inner-city youth, and building a sustainable future for the organization serving them. In addition, alignment with the team helps companies raise their visibility with a young, urban demographic.

To become a corporate sponsor, please contact our office at 773-752-7830, or email us at ssdtchicago@gmail.com.

Individual Member Sponsorship

It costs about $3,000 a year to provide a young person the experience of being part of South Shore Drill Team. In addition to providing each child with a marching uniform, performance equipment, and costumes for stage shows, an individual member sponsorship covers the significant costs of travelling to performances and providing educational support. Older members who have earned leadership positions receive employment training and a small stipend, and those whose families struggle to provide for them receive bus fare, haircuts, winter coats, and other basic items.

If you or your company would like to sponsor an individual member or the team, please contact our office at (773) 752-7830.

In 2011, South Shore Drill Team traveled to Indianapolis, Atlanta, and Orlando to perform at the McDonald’s Historic Black Colleges & University Football Classics. Members carried flags with the McDonald’s logo and wore the logo on their uniforms as well. Despite intense rehearsals and a tight performance schedule, there was plenty of downtime for recreational events like bowling in Atlanta and visiting a water park in Orlando.
