Early Introduction and Access to Technology
We work with K-12 students in the Chicagoland area to provide an early introduction to technology and career routes. Initiatives include:
- Donation of Learning Tools: facilitated the donation of over 1,000 pieces of equipment to CPS schools in 2009.
- Awareness of Opportunities: presented to middle school students through a series of seminars with high school graduation options in technology, including certification in technology, specialty programs, and universities. To date, Foundation has presented to over 5,000 students.
- Communication between High School and University Programs: facilitated DeVry and CPS relationship ensuring the joint enrollment program receives full scholarship awards.
- Scholarship Program: created scholarship programs with Proviso Township in 2009. More to come about our scholarship programs.
