Entrepreneurship Training

Each year, teens from Chicago’s Southside come together to start and run a REAL business. Profits from product sales are distributed amongst the teens and saved to go towards educational expenses and life goals. Not only do they learn how to start a business, they learn to drastically improve interpersonal skills and other soft skills that are essential for success.
