Summer Institute 2015 – Request for Proposals

CIS of Chicago will be hosting the third annual Summer Institute for community partners in August. The Summer Institute is an opportunity for community partners that provide school-based programming to network with similar organizations, build teaching and facilitating skills, and develop effective curricular plans.

This year, we are interested in having community partners provide the workshops at the Institute. We know that our community partners are skilled in many aspects of school-based programming, and we want to highlight the great work that our partners are doing.

We look forward to receiving your workshop proposals!
