Today marked the official end for many of our AmeriCorps members’ terms of service at College Possible Chicago. These 18 idealistic leaders chose to devote a year of their lives toward improving educational inequities in Chicago, helping to make sure that our students, regardless of income, get on a path toward obtaining a college degree. Through their hard work, our juniors saw a 24 percent SAT increase and over 98 percent of our seniors were admitted into four-year colleges and received over $2 million in scholarships.
This fall, our AmeriCorps members will be attending graduate school, law school, beginning their professional careers or returning for a second term at College Possible. We thank them for their service and cannot wait to see what they will accomplish next.
