Starting Onboarding


This is the time where you’ll take steps to become certified, find a school placement, and start building a support network and community of leaders. The below timeline is our standard timeline--though you're Onboarding could between anywhere from November through May!

Between now and when you arrive in our region in June 2020, you’ll:

  • Work toward your licensure requirements, like registering for, taking, and passing your exams

  • Complete hiring requirements that’ll lead to your best school match, like updating your resume, going on interviews and getting to know the Chicago-Northwest Indiana context

  • Engage with your peers through virtual and in-person community spaces and begin to build your network of diverse, passionate, and impactful leaders

  • Prepare for Summer Training by building context through required pre-work—this could look like engaging in specific articles and videos on the history of oppression and resistance within Chicago and Northwest Indiana
