Creating a connected community where all learning counts.
active exchange of insight + innovation
CLX is a nonprofit organization that works with a growing community of youth-serving organizations, cultural institutions, city agencies, employers, and universities to remake learning in Chicago so it’s driven by learners’ interests, enhanced by technology, and connected to opportunity.
Studies have shown declining trust in the ability of government institutions and elected officials to address issues, especially among youth. However, this does not mean that young people are civically disengaged. Instead, young people are utilizing digital media and technology tools to create a broader definition of civics than the commonly held perspective that civic engagement is confined primarily to electoral politics.
