The Teen Work Initiative (TWI) aims to offer boys and girls throughout Chicagoland consistent time and venues to participate in sports administration that develops children’s character and social skills through athletics. Chicago KICS provides these work and service opportunities to young people ages 12-19 who are enrolled in grades 7-12. They will comprise our staff of youth coaches, officials and brand ambassadors. TWI personnel must submit to a background check and secure one letter of recommendation. They also will complete training in the KICS Way, which captures the values and principles of Chicago KICS. That training session will include one hour of classroom instruction and two hours on the field.
