A Message To Our Community

  • CLX Staff

To Our CLX Community,

I hope you are all staying healthy and safe. It has been a surreal few weeks, but as we settle into this new normal, I want to assure you that CLX is doing everything we can to continue to support the OST and connected learning community.

As you may already know, we have changed the community meetup format from in-person to virtual live. We have already hosted one virtual community meetup to great success, and look forward to hosting another soon. Additionally, we have added virtual weekly check-ins to stay connected and collaborate with one another, and we hope you can join us for this week's virtual check-in on Thursday. We are experimenting with various forms of communication, virtual gatherings such as weekly Zoom check-ins and happy hours, as well as other opportunities to collaborate in this time of social distancing.

CLX is also in the process of developing other resources and opportunities for our community, so stay tuned and be sure to read our monthly newsletters for the latest information and news. If you have ideas, thoughts, or suggestions on how we can better serve the community, please do not hesitate to reach out via We welcome all feedback and recommendations

Finally, I would like to harken back to CLX’s mission: to inspire and support innovation that equips digital-age learners and leaders to close Chicago’s opportunity gap. This has been our guiding light from the very beginning, and it will continue to guide us during this time. We are all committed to providing experiences, opportunities, and pathways for Chicago’s youth, now more than ever. Together, we can ensure we stay true to this mission.

Take good care,

Maria Hibbs
Acting Executive Director
