Office Sharing Opportunities
Are you interested in sharing office space with the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance?
The Illinois Safe Schools Alliance envisions a world in which youth develop to their fullest potential, learning in safe and nurturing schools, living in communities that accept and honor differences, where everyone has the freedom to express their sexual orientation and gender identity. Toward that vision, we work with LGBTQ+ students in PreK-12th grade schools through youth leadership programs, policy advocacy, and professional development for adult allies in school systems.
As part of our commitment to anti-oppression, we believe in resource sharing – including our office space! We currently rent space to the (amazing!) Frank Chestnut of the National GSA Network and would love to open up our doors to other small collectives, non-profits, solo legal practitioners, therapists, etc.
Our office aspires to be body-positive, affirming, and trauma-informed. Located on the 12th floor of 180 N. Michigan, Suite 1220, we have excellent natural light, views of Millennium Park and “the Bean,” as well as a fun/welcoming energy. We have a private 8-person conference room and access to a larger conference room located on the 5th floor for a small fee. In addition, we have a private kitchen complete with a full fridge, dishwasher, microwave, and toaster oven. While there is a 24/7 security guard, they are welcoming and do not require guests to check in or show identification.
Currently, we have two smaller offices within our office to share. Both office rentals also include a landline phone, wireless internet, ethernet, printer and copier access, and use of our communal lounge space and conference room. Ideal office sharers will be seeking a short term (3-6 month) rental, with a possibility of renewal for up to 5 years, and can move in as early as January 2, 2018. Ideal tenants will also be LGBTQ+ affirming and are committed to challenging adultism.
117 Sq. Ft. Office: This cozy office is completely private with a locked door that has a unique key. The space comes with a personally controlled heating system, a west-facing window, and (if desired) office furniture including a desk, bookshelf, and filing cabinet.
130 Sq. Ft. Office: This big bright office is also completely private with a locked door that has a unique key. The space comes with a personally controlled heating system, a west-facing and south-facing window, and (if desired) office furniture including a desk, 2 bookshelves, and filing cabinet. There are blinds for when it gets too sunny - always a good problem to have especially in these Chicago winters.
