Career Intensives


Career Intensives is a week-long career exploration program that exposes students to unique career experiences while in high school, opening doors of opportunity for their post-secondary goals and aspirations. Intensives allow students to learn, discover, and connect with a myriad of careers and professionals from around the city of Chicago. 

This program takes place twice a year: Winter (January) & Spring (June).

EPIC students select which career field they are interested in and participating in a full week learning experience. Intensive partners visit our campus and engage with students in a classroom presentation where students are able to learn about their career journey and participate in a work simulation project.  

The week concludes with students visiting our partner's workplaces across the city. This allows students to interact with not only our partner but also their colleagues. Students present their learnings from the week and have lunch and network with professionals.
