Ombudsman Chicago Northwest helps prepare students for life after high school. We offer a post-secondary program that helps students identify their goals after graduation – employment, college or military service – and helps them get there.
We also offer programs with Rasmussen College dual credit program as well as our City Colleges of Chicago for dual enrollment so that our students have the option to earn college credit while in high school. We have post-secondary counselors who help students write resumes and cover letters and complete job applications; research their future careers and anticipate the impact a career can have on all aspects of their life; and research colleges, complete an application for Free Application for Federal Students Aid (FAFSA), and apply for scholarships.
We also offer certificate programs in CNC (computer numeric controlled heavy machinery) operation and A+ Certification for entry-level computer service professionals through our partnership with City Colleges of Chicago. In addition to the certificate programs, we are partnering with UIC Green Cleaning SoftSkills program. We also offer our college and career fairs, field trips, college campus tours and guest speakers to help students explore options for life after graduation.
