You Can Help Grow Our Young Leaders in Public Interest Seminar Series

ICPR is looking to expand our Young Leaders in Public Interest Seminar Series, and you can help! Here's how.

Last summer, we drew over four dozen interns from 16 non-profits across Chicago for the series.

By bringing together interns from a variety of non-profits, we were able to help broaden their educational experience, facilitate conversations between NGOs, and foster a more inclusive sense of community among Chicago-area non-profits.

We held panel discussions with leaders in philanthropy, government, media and the law, drawing speakers from across the political spectrum. Speakers included cultural historian Tim Samuelson, WBEZ Reporter Sam Hudzik, State Senator Kirk Dillard, Woods Fund Program Director Consuella Brown, and DePaul Law Professor Sarah Klaper.

With your help, next summer could be even better! Click here to vote for our proposal!
