Chicago Summer Academy Happy Hour-June 11th

Join us on Thursday, June 11th for a Happy Hour to celebrate the start of our 8th Annual Roosevelt Summer Academy!

This year, eight students from across the country have come to Chicago for the summer to work with our non-profit and local government partners. Our students focus on sustainability, both in their internships and in the work we do as a team after hours.

Join me in welcoming them to Chicago! Meet this years class, share your experiences, and enjoy networking with the Roosevelt community in Chicago. 

Light appetizers will be provided.

About Roosevelt Summer Academy:

Over the course of nine weeks, Summer Academy Fellows are placed full-time with a partner organization, including city governments, community-based organizations, advocacy groups, and think tanks. Concurrently, Fellows participate in a rigorous curriculum composed of workshops, a team-based challenge, field visits, and a speaker series that develops key skills necessary to effectively engage with policy change. Based in New York City, Chicago, and DC, the Summer Academy engages students in the front lines of policy innovation and grassroots change.

Chicago Summer Academy Mission: Food Access and Healthy Communities
Chicago's story is that of a distinctively American city: a cultural and economic hub, driven by a spirit of ingenuity and constant rebirth. However, its communities also face unique challenges, including barriers to strong, healthy, and sustainable communities. These barriers are most deeply felt in the communities who would benefit the most from access to higher quality and healthier food options. Fellows in Chicago will design creative solutions at the grassroots level that address food access, build a culture of wellness, and rethink our food systems.
