All students deserve to be inspired to pursue their purpose and impact the world. We stand on the brink of a tech revolution that will change the way we live, work and collaborate. At Civitas Education Partners, we aim to provide students with an exceptional experience that is rooted in student achievement and civic responsibility.

Our students are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, designers and civic leaders, and they need opportunities to develop and exercise their skills and knowledge through problems in real-world situations and circumstances.

The Civitas Community Impact Experience (CCIE) provides students with a chance to discover their unique talents by working in teams with community and business mentors. The purpose of the program is to engage teams of CICS ChicagoQuest seniors in 6-10 week long projects that address authentic issues, tasks, and topics proposed by sponsors and community partners. Students earn high school credit and may also have opportunities to pursue professional certifications.

By engaging participants as innovators, critical thinkers and problem solvers, CCIE has a transformative impact on students and the Chicago community.
