A Commitment to Our Community
360 CHICAGO began working with My Block, My Hood, My City in 2017 with My Block's Explorers program. The ongoing initiative aims to provide youth from divested neighborhoods with an awareness of the world and opportunities beyond their neighborhood. 360 regularly welcomes groups of Explorers onto the 94th floor, giving them an unparalleled view of the city and a new perspective from 94 floors above their neighborhoods.
“Today’s youth have become isolated in their immediate surroundings and fail to realize that they are part of a bigger community. We offer a huge thank you to 360 CHICAGO for stepping up and supporting Chicago youth.” - Jahmal Cole, Founder of My Block, My Hood, My City
My Block, My Hood, My City's logo has become a favorite photo opp for our visitors. To us, it's not a window decal, it's a statement of intent. 360 CHICAGO believes in being an active part of the betterment of our community.
Young Men's Survival Summit
In 2019, 360 Chicago and M3 partnered to host a Young Men's Survival Summit, a 24-hour event aimed at providing young men with the skills necessary to succeed in underserved neighborhoods. Activities included boxing classes and workshops focused on developing skills such as how to dress for an interview and how to cook a healthy meal.
360 Solstice Sleepover
In June of 2017, 360 Chicago hosted its first ever 360 Solstice Sleepover event, with profits from ticket sales benefitting M3. Local partners joined 360 by providing products and bundling experiences for the event. Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, Revolution Brewing, Chicago Helicopter Experience, Garrett Popcorn Shops, and Walgreens all contributed to a very memorable event. All told, over $8,000 was raised for My Block from the sleepover.
