Portrait of Kolby, smiling in front of a brick wall
Kolby Ledbetter
Volunteer Engagement Associate, VISTA

In January of 2018, Kolby moved to Chicago from the swampy bayous of South Louisiana, because he dreamed of not being hot and sweaty all year long. (Look at him now! Don’t let your dreams be dreams!) He is thrilled to be supporting the mission of 826CHI to invest in the youth and the future of a city that has been remarkably kind to him. When he’s not working, you can find him trying to read more non-fiction and/or looking high and low for the best piece of pie in Chicago.
