Our college affiliates reflect the diversity of our Chicago-based student population. Affiliates attend events in high schools during the academic school day and have the opportunity to speak with over 2000 junior level students per year.
As students prepare for life after high school, we provide connections to a variety of post-secondary options that lead to high paying careers. Our partners include the trades as well as legal, financial and hospitality careers.
The College & Career Summit Tour takes place in multiple high schools during the academic school day. We partner with local and out-of-state colleges and cover the college selection, admission and financial aid process.
Scholarships winners are announced in the high school during the College & Career Summit Tour. Funding for scholarships come directly from the support of local businesses or individuals in the community.
