Since 2007, Marcel Digital has been a proud partner of Chicago Lights, an organization brought to life by members of Fourth Presbyterian Church on North Michigan Avenue back in 1964. Chicago Lights seeks to support and meet the needs of children, youth, and adults facing the challenges of poverty in the city of Chicago. Offering numerous social programs from tutoring to dance academies, and urban farm development to summer day programs, the mission of Chicago Lights is to empower people to thrive academically, secure economic stability, lead healthy lives, and build community.
Marcel Digital and Chicago Lights
Marcel Digital has been involved with Chicago Lights for 10 years as part of their Career Development program. Marcel Digital had been actively participating in charitable services such as donating computers to the community when we were told about the Chicago Lights program. We saw this as an opportunity to make a real difference in a student's life, helping them build their professional skills with actual work tasks in a real industry setting, while also teaching them how to communicate in a professional office environment. Our goal with our participation in the program is to help empower our students to ask and answer questions, to observe and learn, to explore and inspire, but most importantly, to grow and be the best version of themselves that they can possibly be.
