Chicago City of Learning - open to all Chicago youth
From the web site: "The first effort of its kind to take place in a major city in the United States, Chicago City of Learning (CCOL) is a groundbreaking initiative that joins together learning opportunities for young people in a way that allows them to think about, pursue, and develop their interests. CCOL breaks down the false barriers between learning that happens in school and learning that happens outside of school. Through CCOL young people can take new paths of discovery, explore the city's rich resources and find out what they can learn, make, do, and ultimately become.

CPS students already have accounts waiting for them! All they need to do is visit ChicagoCityOfLearning.org/CPS and enter their name and CPS ID# (located on report card or ID card) to claim the account. Those who are not CPS students should visit ChicagoCityOfLearning.org and click on SIGN UP to create an account."
