floChicago is a leadership development program founded by a group of educators, principals, professionals, and civic leaders in partnership with the University of Chicago and the Chicago Community Trust. floChicago will select approximately 30 high school leaders from the Chicago area to participate in 1) a week-long leadership immersion residential program on campus at The University of Chicago from August 6 through August 12, 2017, and 2) meetings and retreats throughout the 2017-2018 school year. Students will have an opportunity to engage with some of Chicago’s most prominent leaders and participate in activities centered around civic engagement, leadership development, college preparation, and career exposure. The program is offered at no cost to participants.
