Opening Day

Join us as we welcome our new corps and kick off the 2021-2022 school year that will be like no other. After more than a year of both disruption and innovation, we cannot wait to support our students and schools in person and celebrate our corps’ commitment to service.

We are excited to have Dr. Maurice Swinney, Chicago Public Schools’ Interim Chief Education Officer, join our Vice President & Executive Director Myetie Hamilton for a Fireside Chat focused on the impact our corps members will have on CPS students in this year of recovery.

Please register by September 2, 2021. The Zoom link to the virtual ceremony will be sent to all registered guests by September 9th.
