We currently partner with the following organizations:
Village Leaders Joint Block Club
In the summer of 2022, a group of neighbors on the 5000 blocks of Jackson Boulevard and Quincy Street (the two streets adjacent to CJA) re-started a long-dormant, joint block club. Following the mission below, the block club hosts their meetings on CJA’s campus and partners with CJA and Christ the King to serve our immediate neighborhood.
It is the mission of the Village Leaders Joint Block Club to establish revitalization through community engagement, in a hope to promote public safety and to improve the quality of life for all who live, work, and play in our neighborhoods.
If you would like to connect with the Village Leaders Joint Block Club, please contact Arewa Winters or Dawn Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
West Side Basketball League
In the winter of 2019, Chicago Jesuit Academy began serving as a site for the West Side Basketball League, a league started by City of Refuge Chicago. City of Refuge believes in a collaborative impact model – partnering with organizations and individuals from three segments of society: civic (local law enforcement and government agencies), sacred (local faith-based organizations), and secular (nonprofits and businesses).
CJA has continued to partner with City of Refuge and proudly serves as a host site for West Side Basketball. If you would like to connect with the West Side Basketball League, please contact Stephanie Marquardt at email@example.com.
