Our students are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, designers and civic leaders, and they need opportunities to develop and exercise their skills and knowledge through problems in real-world situations and circumstances.
At CICS ChicagoQuest, seniors are in a 6-10 week long project, the Civitas Community Impact Experience (CCIE), that addresses authentic issues, tasks, and topics proposed by sponsors and community partners. Students earn high school credit and may also have opportunities to pursue professional certifications.
At CCIE, students have a chance to discover their unique talents by working in teams with community and business mentors. By engaging participants as innovators, critical thinkers and problem solvers, CCIE has a transformative impact on students and the Chicago community.
