Associated Colleges of Illinois’ Work and Life Skills Boot Camps deliver high-quality, intensive pre-employment skills and relevant information to juniors and seniors enrolled at ACI member colleges and universities. All students are welcome to attend. However, the content is specifically designed for low-income, first-generation degree-seekers and/or students of color — students who may not have sufficient personal and professional networks and shared family experiences to support successful career launches.

Developed with funding from a Council of Independent Colleges’ First Opportunity Grant, the Boot Camps advance the efforts of member institutions to prepare disadvantaged students to obtain post-graduation employment, launch careers, and establish financial stability for themselves and their families.

Date/Time: October 6, 2022 10:00 AM in Central Time
