Chicago Center Response to Covid-19

We are excited to welcome students to the Chicago Center this fall on August 21st! In preparing for the fall, we will implement the same guidelines that enabled us to have successful programs in the spring and summer. We look forward to working with students, schools, local businesses, and organizations this fall to provide meaningful placements and learning opportunities.

In addition to following all local and national guidelines regarding COVID-19, the Chicago Center has taken these additional measures.
