Since 1999, i.c.stars has been identifying, training, and jump-starting technology careers for Chicago-area low-income young adults who, although lacking access to education and employment, demonstrate extraordinary potential for success in the business world and for impact in their communities.
Our program is grounded in the conviction that the fundamentals necessary to succeed in technology services are the same as those necessary for community leadership. We believe that when young adults focus their talent on both technology services and community impact, their success in both increases significantly.
