Junior Board

The Junior Board is an organization of young adults committed to supporting Chicago Jesuit Academy by promoting awareness and encouraging involvement through effective community action in the forms of volunteer service, social fundraising and other advancement initiatives.

The Junior Board hosts several service and social events throughout the year culminating in the annual Give-A-Little Gala each November.  The Gala is the Junior Board’s primary fundraising vehicle with proceeds going directly to support CJA students.

If you are interested in learning more about joining the Junior Board or attending an event, please contact Kate Cooney at cooney@cjacademy.org or at (773) 629-6674.   We are always looking for new members and would welcome the opportunity to welcome you into the CJA family.
