Corporate Engagement Opportunities

CIS of Chicago enthusiastically partners with corporate groups, organizations, and individuals who are passionate about supporting the success of Chicago public-school students. We offer several opportunities for companies – and their employees – to engage in our impactful work.

Inspire Chicago's Next Generation

We are looking for companies across the city to partner with to expose our students to different environments and career opportunities, inspiring them to set goals and dream big. Our team will bring 10-20 students from a CPS high school to your company’s office for a 90-minute session. Students will receive a brief tour of your space, then we will facilitate a goal-setting activity for you and up to 30 of your colleagues. We’ll coordinate the logistics and activities, making it a light lift for your team.

*This opportunity is available to corporate supporters who donate $10,000 or more annually to CIS of Chicago.

Send Cheer Notes to Students

Encourage the city’s young people by sending them Cheer Notes. Your words of wisdom will provide young people with the boost of confidence they need to focus on their schoolwork throughout the year – and show them just how many people across Chicagoland are cheering them on. All you need are some notecards or paper; markers, pens, or colored pencils; and a little creativity. We ask that each participant creates at least 10 Cheer Notes.

Show Your Support for a Local Principal

Chicago public-school principals are real-life superheroes. They work tirelessly to lead their school communities and support students in overcoming obstacles and to succeed academically. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, our principals have been even more important in the lives of young people, helping them with everything from accessing meals and essential supplies to navigating remote learning. Sign up to write a letter of encouragement to a principal at one of our 175 partner schools!

CIS of Chicago is always looking for school supplies and other basic essentials to support our students, schools, and families. If you or your company are interested in learning more, please reach out to Mary Kate Paetow-Fanning at [email protected].
