Curating opportunities for young people and caring adults every week.
OPPORTUNITY OF THE WEEK:
Happy Holidays from CCOL!
We want to wish a very happy holiday season to our community, whatever you may celebrate!
However you celebrate, we hope that our CCOL community can enjoy some time off school with loved ones. As we head into the new year, CCOL has a lot to be grateful for in 2017. Thank you for all that you have done to help Chicago kids engage in learning. We know that 2018 will be our best year yet!
And if you're looking for something fun for kids to do during the break, check out programs for the coming weeks on ChicagoCityofLearning.org
