Future Leaders In Planning (FLIP) Summer Series 2020

Future Leaders in Planning (FLIP) is the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning's (CMAP) leadership development program for high school students in northeastern Illinois. FLIP is a FREE program where teens learn about the issues that shape our region and think of solutions with other students from Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties. Participants meet and interact with selected regional leaders who make key planning decisions in our communities.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Future Leaders in Planning Program will not operate in person this year. We value the safety of young people in our region, and therefore plan to host a four-week virtual program for interested students.
