CHICAGO, Ill. - CCJM supports a citywide initiative dubbed “Smart Chicago”, and our firm knows a smarter Chicago starts with our youth. CCJM Chicago has chosen to invest in our city by partnering with The Bright Star Community Outreach Program and is hosting a youth intern program throughout the summer.

We mentor our interns, show them how to leverage state of the art technology and integrate those systems into projects. This is an immersive introduction to the field of engineering where our interns have access to the latest software and are guided by our seasoned staff. We help to empower Chicago youth with career building opportunities, job strengthening skills and networking events. CCJM believes in the mission of the “Smart Chicago” initiative, which is improving lives of all Chicago residents through technology & innovation.
