About Jenner Academy
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play Program in the fall of 2004.
- Located in the Cabrini-Green neighborhood in Chicago and has 283 students.
- 98% of the school population is African American. 98% come from low-income households.
- Many of the children at Jenner have faced relocation as the housing projects in Cabrini-Green have been in large part dismantled
- Jenner ends every practice with the numbers game. It’s always a team favorite, but when they’ve done an exceptionally good job at practice, the team usually plays boys vs. girls. The girls almost alway win.
