Chicago Adventure Therapy
Spend Summer 2019 working with CAT
We are looking for a few dedicated folks who are interested in spending their summer interning with Chicago Adventure Therapy. For more information on our Program Intern position and our Social Media Intern position go to the Get Involved tab.
We celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2018! We spent the year looking back in order to look forward.
Monthly photo contests
Throughout 2018, we posted photo albums to Facebook with our 10 favorite photos from one year – and asked you to vote for your favorite. In December, we asked you to choose the best photo from our first decade of programming. Here’s the winner! To see the winners from each month, check out this album.
10th Anniversary Videos
We also interviewed CAT youth and leaders. In 2018, we brought you videos sharing what they have to say about CAT. We have some more – so we’ll keep sharing in 2019! To see all the videos, you can watch on our YouTube channel or our Facebook page. This video was the first in a series about a particular Youth Intern – who became paid CAT staff.
