We believe empowering youth to create their own businesses can have great impact on their own self-worth, perception of the meaning of success, and can positively impact underrepresented neighborhoods across Chicago.

Cohort 2

This bright group of teens entered the program with a strong desire to equip themselves with whatever it took to see their communities improved. These students are passionate about economic justice and aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves to do the work. They're learning to leverage their creativity, collective experiences and unique perspectives to develop businesses they can create now for longstanding impact on their community's narratives. Stay tuned to see what magic they create!
