Chicago: Slots Available 4 HS STEM Program

Hello and Well Wishes,
I am putting on my education activist hat, rolling up my sleeves and doing what I can to connect underserved young people to a summer enrichment opportunity. Kennedy-King College in partnership with the University of Chicago is offering a Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program taking place at both campuses.
This is where I need your assistance. I am working to fill seats in the program. There are 33 slots available, and I have a vision of every seat being filled.
Attached is the flyer describing the key aspects of the program. If you know any high school students who have an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers and have completed their junior year please have them contact me at or have them complete the online application embedded in the flyer.
There is a time crunch since the program begins on Monday, July 1st. I know it is the last minute, but like I said I'm on a mission.
I appreciate all you are willing to do to make this a successful program model. Kennedy-King is one of 14 recipients of the national grant from the Department of Education, and the only community college funded.
I can also be reached on my mobile phone -312-933-7665.
Best regards,
