In the Black (of African descent) community unemployment is at least 2x the national level (the official estimate is about 16.7%, but the real rate is closer to 30%). Black-owned businesses are 85% more likely to hire Black employees than non-Black-owned businesses. So the most efficient use of our consumer dollars is to develop the Black community, increase Black employment and increase Black wealth is to support Black-owned businesses.

Please join our efforts by donating so that we can gain the resources to market, promote and make our people aware of all of our great Black Owned Businesses in the Chicagoland area via:

-Training and positioning four (4) African American youth employees through the months of Jun - Aug 2013 to do:
•Market Research
•Brand Awareness
•Relationship Building
•Community Service

-We will also host business development workshops for Black Owned Businesses to understand the importance of:
•Marketing
•Customer Service
•Consistency
•Giving Back


Through training and development, we are paving the way to build a wealthy and stable community that we can be proud of.
