We offer 3 $2000.00 tuition scholarships to chamber member businesses employees who have high school seniors. The Des Plaines Chamber foundation has been offering these scholarships since 1985. Each recipient is awarded the scholarship at a special luncheon in May.
By donating to Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce’s Veterans Back-to-Work Boot Camp, you help returning veterans transition to civilian life and in some cases Veterans in a transition, surface career goals and passions, and leverage the exceptional skills they developed in the military to achieve their dreams and become community and workplace leaders.
“I was lucky to find this program at a time in my life when I felt lost… The Veterans Boot Camp gave me priceless networking opportunities and the chance to meet with companies that have a desire to hire veterans. I received resume tips and reviews from business leaders. And I learned how to shape my work persona for my chosen profession. Your program was a blessing….” Laura, 2017 Boot Camp alum.
Veterans -- like Laura and so many more -- serve our country at great personal sacrifice. With your donation, we can show our gratitude and launch them to success in their civilian life.
