Impact host an Annual Summit at the Tinley Park Convention Center the last Saturday in July. The event is from 12 Noon-3 pm and has 3 parts: College Panel, Engagement Speakers and College/Community Resource Exhibit. Local high school students and their parents attend for free but must register at www.impactccrn.com/student-registration.
To date the summit has served over 1500 local high school students and their parents. We expect this year to be the largest event yet. The venue seats a thousand people. Many parents are planning their summer vacations now. We would like to get the information to them as soon as possible.
The 5K District Initiative:
Each year Impact shares college readiness information and resources with junior level students in six Chicago area high schools – Rich Central, Rich East and Rich South are among the high schools served www.impactccrn.com/5k-district-initiative
Junior level students learn about the college selection, admission and financial aid process. The Illinois Student Assistance Commission has partnered with Impact to share financial resources with students.
