On Tuesday, February 1st at 6:30 pm, Jesuit Academy will host a panel discussion on Raising Successful Young Black Men in Omaha. All interested parents, guardians, and community members are invited to attend this event free of charge. 

Jesuit Academy sits in the heart of historic North Omaha at the economic center of 24th and Lake. As a member of the community and being deeply invested in the success of North Omaha and the members of that community, Jesuit Academy wants to be a resource not only to the families of the young men who attend the school, but to the entire community. 

The Jesuit tradition of developing ‘Men for Others’ is at the core of the education and formation mission of the school. The Jesuits who started the school, as well as Creighton University and Creighton Prep, knew and believed that strong, ethical, faithful, intelligent and caring men were and are the cornerstone of successful communities. 

With this purpose in mind, the Jesuit Academy faculty, administration, governing board and the Mission and Identity committee have set out to put on a series of community conversations about how we can all work together to help the young men of this community grow, thrive and realize their full potential. A great way to start and lead these conversations is to have men who are models of success and leadership share their learnings and experiences with the families of Jesuit and the families of the community.
