After School Matters

Posted: 9/22/2011

On September 21, 2011, Civiltech attended the After School Matters (ASM) Annual Gala. This year marked the 20th anniversary of ASM with the Gala event held at Navy Pier. The Gala highlighted ASM teen gallery work that includes paintings, sculptures, and photography. A music and dance performance was also provided with hors d'oeurves and dinner presented by the Culinary Arts Program. Funds raised through ASM directly support the organization’s mission to provide Chicago public high school students great opportunities to develop their talents while gaining skills for work and college. Civiltech has been a supporter of ASM for the past four years, volunteering at programs and providing internship opportunities.
