Ida M. lost her job due to COVID-19 and was accepted into the Chicago Codes Bootcamp cohort in September 2020. “I was a little apprehensive because I was a more mature applicant and had antiquated IT experience,” she said. The 11-week bootcamp provided supportive instructors, class tutors and consultants. After successfully completing the program, Ida went from being laid off due to COVID-19, to getting a full-time job in upper management with a successful startup. “I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is serious about finding employment that provides financial stability and mental stimulation.”

Be aware and be careful. There are still scammers trying to take advantage of people through phishing.

We're urging Illinoisans to be on high alert for phishing schemes that may be leading to identity theft.

It's because international bad actors continue to attempt to exploit unemployment systems across the country.

Fraudulent texts, emails, and social media messages, posing as IDES are being sent to try to get personally identifiable info.

It's an organized attempt to defraud state unemployment insurance systems until federal unemployment programs expire on Sept 4, 2021.

Proud to be partnering on this great new project! If you are interested in a career in the Culinary field, this could be the program for you! Next session begins soon! Contact us to find out more!

We are so proud of our first cohort of apprentices who completed 8 weeks of rigorous classes! With their new knife kits, they will now move into unionized culinary positions to complete the on-the-job portion of their apprenticeship.
At our Culinary Apprenticeship Back-to-Work Ceremony at McCormick Place, we were honored to be joined by Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton, Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority CEO Larita Clark and Father Clete Kiley.

The UHCHI Culinary Apprenticeship is truly a collaborative effort and would not be possible without our partners and supporters including HIRE360 Chicago , the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity, the Chicago Federation of Labor, the CFL Workforce & Community Initiative, McCormick Place, Savor…Chicago and all of our participating hospitality employers.

We are excited to welcome our second cohort of culinary apprentices in July and look forward to providing high quality training across all hospitality classifications in the future!
