CLX Insights: July 2020 Newsletter - Volume 2, Issue 7

 
FEATURE: FROM THE VAULT -

The Founding Story: A Member-driven Network to Connect Chicago's Learners and Leaders Then and Now

Before there was the Chicago Learning Exchange or even the Hive Chicago Learning Network, the John D. &
Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation convened a select group of individuals to create an out-school time innovation Network.

Gina Grant sat down with Robin Schnur, Senior Director of Youth and Family at the Art Institute of Chicago, to learn more about the start and her thoughts on the future.

Tell me about the early days of the Network.

Around 2009, the President of John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation put a call out convening directors of museums and heads of institutions to galvanize collective energy around reimagining learning in Chicago, to be relevant, digitally-enabled, and connected, in recognition that young people thrive in their learning when they can pursue their own interests, connect to others with shared interests, and can do so 'anywhere, anytime,' not only in the context of the formal education system.

What resulted from that initial convening was a large group of youth-serving organizations representing many different interest-areas-art, STEM, media production, music, writing- that formed the original Chicago Learning Network (CLN). It was an exciting moment of coming together around a shared purpose-to amplify opportunities for teens in the city.

CLX JULY COMMUNITY UNMEETUP RECAP + ACTION -

July 16 UnMeetup Resource Fair: Working Group

Thank you for attending our July UnMeetup: Resource Working Group! If you were unable to attend our event, here are some highlights:

  • Iterating on past working sessions such as one led by Cameron Sow, CLX members came together to pull together our community's collective resources on areas of need such as mental health, summer safety, housing, job opportunities, internet access, etc.

We urge community members to continue to grow this collection by adding resources to the Working Group section of the CLX Community Wiki under "July 16th UnMeetup." For a recap of the July UnMeetup view here. We encourage sharing resources through our #xchange channel on Slack or on Twitter, tagging @ChicagoLX with the hashtag #Xchange

CLX truly appreciate those who were able to attend and contribute. If you were able to stop in, no matter how brief, please leave your thoughts and feedback via this Mentimeter.

We continue with CLX virtual convenings every first and third Thursday at 9 am: 

Register for the August 6th Community Check-in.
