Apply today to be a Future Leader in Planning 

Future Leaders in Planning (FLIP) is the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) premier leadership development program for high school students in northeastern Illinois.  
At no cost to themselves, teens across the region will learn about urban planning, solve real-world problems, take field trips around the region, and get involved in the issues that shape our region with other teens from Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties. Participants will also meet and interact with selected regional leaders who make key planning decisions in our communities.  The week-long summer program is an excellent opportunity for young adults to make their voice heard for the future of the region as CMAP develops its next comprehensive plan, ON TO 2050. This year the program will focus on how to plan for Alternative Futures that could affect our region including issues such as changed climate and innovative transportation
Local high school students looking for an enriching experience can fill out the 2017 Summer FLIP application and watch a behind-the-scenes video to see how previous students have helped contribute to the future of the Chicago region. Applications must be submitted, postmarked, or emailed by Friday, June 9, 2017.
