Chicago 200 seeks youth leaders to envision city's bicentennial

Chicago 200 is looking for youth leaders to help envision the city's future.

In 2037 Chicago will be 200 years old - and a leadership program is recruiting leaders aged 18 to 24 to discuss what the city should look like and be known for on its bicentennial.

From April 24-27, Chicago 200 will see young Chicagoans who are invested in the city’s future gather to brainstorm, test, refine and present visions for Chicago.  Over the 4-day event, those selected for the program will travel across the city to different organizations and meet with around 50 established leaders who will serve as group advisors, speakers and immersion hosts  (We're proud to report that President Sonya Malunda of the ACM is one of those leaders).

Chicago 200 is a program of Common Purpose, a leadership development organization that specializes in cross-boundary leadership. The organization has enrolled 80,000 people in leadership programs around the world. 

If you or someone you know are 18-24, have a heart for Chicago and are available over the program dates, we encourage you to check it out!

Note, applications close Monday March 25.
