Join us as we return for the third year of Chicago’s premier youth and family learning festival!
Chicago Learning Days
Chicago Learning Days powered by Mayor Lightfoot’s My CHI. My Future returns for the third year for this hands-on festival for the future of work and learning.
The Chicago Learning Exchange (CLX), Local Lead Partners—WTTW Kids, Project Exploration, Chicago Public Schools Family and Community Engagement, Chicago Park District—and Event Hosts will turn Chicago into an open house learning laboratory online and in-person. In partnership with My Chi. My Future, we will feature fun and free events for youth of all ages at which families will experience making, new technology, art workshops, science experiments, student films, outdoor learning and more!
Chicago Learning Days will be focused on our region but connected to a national conversation with partners like Remake Learning Network, PBS KIDS and Digital Promise, Common Sense Media and Learning Heroes. Thank you to all our Event Hosts—without your year around work Chicago Learning Days would not be possible.
Special thanks to our generous supporters for 2022! We are incredibly grateful to our Lead sponsor: Allstate, our Changemaker sponsor: Wintrust; Innovator Sponsor: The Field Foundation and The Chicago Community Trust; and Maker level supporters Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois and Blue Door Neighborhood Center.
