About Us

Rebel Voices is dedicated to creating opportunities and eliminating barriers by providing financial assistance, educational resources and mentorship to underserved young adults from Chicago's South and West side neighborhoods.

History

Rebel Voices was founded in June 2020 by

Victoria Magnus, Director of Magnus Charitable Trust.  While MCT provides scholarships for four year college and university programs, Victoria saw a need for trade school scholarships.  She partnered with community organizations and educational institutions to identify and help students in need.

Vision

A rebel is someone who goes their own way. 

A rebel is someone who lives life on their own terms. 

We are here to amplify rebel voices and support individuals who want to begin a new career by providing financial support through scholarship and social-emotional support through mentorship.

Our rebel story is just beginning.
