Facebook Executives Visit CTK

Cook County Commissioner Richard R. Boykin, Facebook Executives Ana Martinez and Will Castleberry, and Rev. Janette Wilson from Rainbow PUSH joined the CTK community this morning for a wide-ranging conversation addressing issues from jobs in technology, to privacy settings and online conflict resolution, to Facebook's response to recent Facebook Live videos and their commitment to fostering a safe social media community.  Through this dialogue our students continue to be empowered to be positive, responsible leaders online and in the community. 
 
Our students had the opportunity to learn more about Facebook policies, share their ideas and challenges in using the platform, and learn more about ways they can be responsible leaders online. Students also invited Facebook to consider partnering with CTK's unique Corporate Work Study Program, which enables students to earn the majority of their tuition by working corporate jobs one day each week. In the transition to a digital workplace, our students are eager to build skills for the 21st century workplace and our 1:1 computer program provides them with the technology to work toward mastery.
 
As part of our commitment to form informed and engaged citizens and leaders, Christ the King provides opportunities for students to meet with civic and business leaders, engage in dialogue, and advocate for themselves on topical local and national issues.
