After School Matters summer programs run from July 5 – August 13 and will take place in-person at locations across the city as well as through select remote options. No vaccinations are required for participation.
Apply for an ASM summer program to explore your passions, refine new skills, and earn money at the same time!
How do I apply?
This summer all ASM teens will need to complete a One Summer Chicago (OSC) application. After you submit your application here, click on the Complete Your After School Matters Application button to make your program selections.
Don’t worry, we won’t make you enter the same information twice! The ASM application will auto-fill in all the information you already entered on the OSC application.
Do I always have to log into the One Summer Chicago (OSC) application to access my ASM application?
Nope! After you submit your OSC application, you can log directly back into your ASM application on our usual application page by entering your Application ID.
You can find this Application ID in your application confirmation email or on the One Summer Chicago dashboard. OSC and ASM both use the same Application IDs.
Who do I contact for help with the One Summer Chicago part of the application?
If you have any questions about the OSC application please email [email protected] or call their hotline at 312-743-0208.
What is different this year?
This summer we have separate programs for 14 & 15 year olds and teens 16+:
14 & 15 year-olds can choose from Pre-Apprenticeship or Apprenticeship programs, both offering stipends for participation.
Teens 16+ can choose between Advanced Apprenticeships in which they earn a stipend (equal to $15 per hour) or Internships which provide an hourly wage of $15 per hour.
Internships require a completed I-9 form for participation.
For inquiries related to the teen application please call 312-768-5200 or email [email protected].
