The Chicago Gifted Community Center website is one of the ways we strive to serve the Chicago area gifted community. After listening to the responses of over 75 area gifted families who participated in our initial survey, we designed a site we believe will help families make the connections they desire. Members of the Chicago Gifted Community Center have access to:
- Full Event Calendars: which include upcoming CGCC events, as well as free or low cost local events of interest to families of gifted, events in the area gifted community, and interesting free online courses.
- Family Directory: This is a useful tool for families to find others who share common interests to create personal networks. Families can tailor what information is visible.
- Professional Directory: We have started accepting professional members who understand gifted to the Professional Directory. We are hoping this will begin to serve as a “Gifted Yellow Pages” for the Chicago area gifted community.
- Mentor Directory: This is still under development, but we have the capability of creating a directory of area mentors who are interested in working with gifted families.
We are a nonprofit, all volunteer site, however we do ask for a suggested annual donation of $25 to help support the cost of the site and insurance and because we believe that most families desire to support the growth of services for the gifted community.
If you have questions about our site, or are a gifted family who would benefit from membership but can’t afford the donation, please contact us.
