    CREW Careers is excited to be kicking off the 2017 program the first four Tuesday's in March from 5:30 - 7:30 pm with the Off the Street Club (OTSC). This year's program will focus on educating the girls about retail buildouts. The first session will take place at the Merchandise Mart, sessions two and three will be at the Club, and the fourth session at DIRTT's office in the Loopcrewcareers2011

    About CREW Careers:

    Every year CREW Chicago members take part in a non-profit event called CREW Careers. The CREW Careers program introduces teenage girls to careers in the CRE industry. For the past several years, we have teamed up with the Off the Street Club (OTSC) in the West Garfield Park neighborhood - they provide us with our "class" of approximately 25-30 girls, from 7th grade to high school seniors. Many of the girls repeat the program every year - it's a big favorite for them. We try to make the program as interactive and as relevant to the girls as possible, while at the same time, giving them an idea of several different real estate careers.

    How can you help?

     As part of the event, we try to provide the group of girls with t-shirts, we provide them with snacks and a small party for their efforts on the final day as well as try to provide them with goodie bags full of donated necessities or school supplies they might not have otherwise. We are looking for companies to help with donations (monetary or otherwise) to so we can help provide them these items. We are also looking for volunteers to help at each session - you need not be able to attend all sessions in order to volunteer.

         *Cash Donations: Contact Aleisha Jaeger at ajaeger@gilbaneco.com or 773-695-3543

          * Goodie bag donations of 30 items (i.e. company logo items such as pencils, pens, school supplies, etc.): Contact Aleisha Jaeger at ajaeger@gilbaneco.com or 773-695-3543

         *  Volunteer: Contact Linsey Neyt at lneyt@lplegal.com or 312-476-7591
