i.c.stars Charity Profile
I.c.stars was formed in 1999 to develop 1,000 Community Leaders by 2020. We are a non-profit organization in Chicago for adults with a high school diploma or GED. Using project-based learning and full immersion teaching, i.c. stars provides an opportunity for change-driven, future leaders to develop skills in business and technology.
Our training is project-based. Participants work in teams of 3-4 people on three client projects over the 16-week course of training. This team orientation is intentional. Strong team skills and real experience differentiate our alumni more than any other skill. After the initial 16-week course, participants work with i.c.stars career services to find full-time work in the Information Technology and Internet professions. Career services are available to participants for the next 3-5 years of their career based on their individual efforts at personal and professional development.
