CHIPS Communications has both online and onsite components that work in conjunction with community co-op programs. This program integrates Tekelia Kelly's CHIPS, and is designed to be a school-to-work and talent search network for high school students in grades 10-12; and to help them gain internship, job shadowing and entry-level work opportunities.  Celebrate Chattanooga serves as a "virtual" learning portal for teaching and demonsrtation of students digital projects like e-portfolios and media.

Through this STEAM-integrated education designed and taught to students in Tekelia Kelly's CHIPS and INTERNCHIPS programs, students learn art, business, information technology, communications and leadership skills, and ar given learner-adaptive, standards-based assessment and academic instruction aligned with needs of today's jobs.  Students gain hands-on experience in multimedia projects, critical thinking, communications, presentations and Information Technnology skills. 


CHIPS programs are dedicated to helping sponsors "hire and inspire" high school students, for better school-to-work success.  We help empower student success through our 1-on-1 tailored life, job and career skills training;  mentoring; and hands-on work experience. Students are exposed to and work on projects involving the arts, business, engineering, computer technology, marketing, communications, digital and social media, and music recording with sponsors who support their work through the site.


In our model, students develop academic, creativity, digital and technical skills that help build their marketability and work portfolios for employment, entrepreneurship and/or education advancement.  They take on roles and are given real job titles for use on their junior resumes and job applications such as "Community Communications Correspondents".  Companies are seen as supporters of community, workforce, and economic development. Together, the student and sponsor's project is showcased via the Celebrate Chattanooga website, also spotlighting both student and sponosr via newsletter. 


Individuals or groups who have a relationship with student through home, school, job, church, youth group, and the like, and wish to work with student(s) to develop their educational, technology, art, and/or interpersonal skills, as well as support student and project needs, including financial assistance are acceptable as student's sponsor(s).
