Applications due for Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice 2021: Imagining a Path Forward


What is the IFTJ?

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice, or IFTJ, is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. 

  • When: November 4-8, 2021
  • Where: Washington DC
  • Cost due to JHS: $555 per student (this includes airfare, hotel, and registration; students responsible for cost of food and Metro on site). 

The Office of Service & Justice has 8 available spots for the Jesuit High School delegation. All ages are welcome to apply, though some priority will be given to Sophomores and Juniors for the sake of building momentum for the work upon students’ return.
