PROGRAM STAFF

We work with schools in two ways — by connecting schools to schoolwide and group-focused programs, and by placing counselors in schools to provide specialized support to students. The services we connect to schools are provided by a robust network of local organizations we call community partners, including our corporate mentorship programs with Capital One. CIS of Chicago works with community partners by providing tailored support in areas such as classroom management and evaluation and assessment.
