One Summer Chicago + Chicago Learning Exchange 2018 Wrap-up Report

For the third-year, the Chicago Learning Exchange (CLX) was proud to partner with Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s One Summer Chicago (OSC) — the second-largest summer youth employment program in the nation. OSC brings together government institutions, community-based organizations, and companies to provide employment and internship opportunities to youth and young adults ages 14 to 24. This summer, more than 31,000 young people were employed through the program. Summer jobs help young people develop critical life skills, including financial responsibility and professionalism, and expose them to career paths they may not have otherwise considered.
