Offering a two-year program, i.c. stars provides opportunities for young adults to develop advanced technical and leadership skills. Since 1999, according to, the organization “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 the extraordinary potential for success in the business world and for impact in their communities.” i.c. stars engages with Chicago-area companies in two ways, either through the temporary or full-time hiring of i.c. stars alums or custom Fellowship programs.
