500 by 2025 Program
Mission: To consistently graduate 500 students/year from local universities by 2025.
We have designed a three pronged approach.
Build 30 local NSBE Jr. chapters(currently at 20) and produce a pilot after school program with 4 CPS schools to expose and engage children in STEM based programs and competitions.
Work with Chicagoland Junior Colleges(City Colleges, COD, South Suburban, etc.) to help interested students get into 4 year engineering schools here in the Chicago area.
Mentor current engineering students at Northwestern, UIC, DePaul, IIT, Purdue Calumet and NIU to help them graduate and find positions in industry.
