The Coop Center for Creativity seeks a Writing Workshop Leader to teach a 6-week after school course for public high school students. Inspired by the 826 Valencia national writing program (http://826national.org/) the CCC Writing Workshop will feature a project-based learning model that will result in the publishing of a limited edition book of student writing. The Writing Workshop Leader should possess the ability to creatively engage Coop students in strengthening their writing skills while instilling in them a passion for writing and self-expression. Program will begin in late October 2010 and meet 2x/week for six weeks. We seek candidates with demonstrated energy and enthusiasm for developing an engaging curriculum and teaching students of various abilities one-on-one and in a group setting. Graduate students, teachers, artists and professional writers welcome. Design/Layout experience a plus. Top candidates will be required to pass security checks.

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.
In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.
As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
