Career and Technical Education (CTE) division of Chicago Public Schools is looking for architects to speak in the classroom in several high schools. This year the CTE is attempting to ramp up their partnerships with associations and businesses to offer students more opportunities inside and outside of the classroom.
Would you like to volunteer?
Speakers will aid thousands of students in over 60 community, selective enrollment, and career high schools throughout the city. These students are pursuing career training in a particular area (e.g. business, IT, health, pre-engineering, architecture, etc.) while still completing their core CPS academic requirements.
