One Summer Chicago Opportunities
This year will mark Chicago Learning Exchange’s fourth year working with One Summer Chicago to co-develop skill-building experiences to support young people to excel in their summer jobs and beyond. Although winter may still be upon us, the application for One Summer Chicago (OSC) opens up on March 15. Visit http://www.onesummerchicago.org to access the application and please share it with youth in your network.
In addition to co-developing youth skill-building experiences, CLX also supports OSC in recognizing and validating youth skills through the use of digital badging, using LRNG - a national digital learning and badging platform. OSC has developed a strategy to launch a multi-year tiered program where youth who have earned work-skills digital badges can level up to new and challenging skill-building opportunities each summer they participate in OSC. CLX is proud of the partnership with OSC and excited about the promise of digital badging in helping OSC youth develop skills and access opportunities along learning pathways.
