On Friday, February 2, we held our first annual Instructor Forum! Over 300 of our independent and community-based instructors gathered at Northeastern Illinois University for a day of professional development. Instructors had the opportunity to participate in workshops, learn about trauma-informed practice, engage in conversations with content experts during breakout sessions, connect with mentor and peer instructors, and more.
We are thankful to work with a community of committed and caring instructors who are dedicated to learning new ways to help Chicago’s teens find their future.
