Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will have to cancel all of our events for the next few months including our Career Symposium scheduled for March 27th. We are disappointed that we must cancel, but our hands our tied as we must take all precautionary measures possible for everyone’s health.

With that said, we plan to have the same event in the Spring of 2021 for next year’s seniors.

The event is a half-day conference for Chicago high school seniors from CMSA, HSA McKinley Park, and HSA Southwest Chicago to learn about career paths, opportunities, and skills to help them succeed after graduating.
