Eckenhoff Saunders Hosts Career Panel for After School Matters Students

Earlier this week, Eckenhoff Saunders welcomed in students from After School Matters. This non-profit organization provides life-changing after-school and summer program opportunities to nearly 19,000 Chicago high school teens annually.

The students are currently enrolled in “Design. Build. Skate!” a program that focuses on building awareness of architecture & design through the lens of skateboarding, skateboarding culture, and the built environment. Our career panel provided more insight into the architecture profession, the design + build process, and educational and career advancement tips. Students enjoyed an office tour with stunning Lake Michigan and Millenium Park views. It was a wonderful evening, and we hope to see the students again soon!
