We use a community-based systems approach to intervention in the Chicago land communities. Our purpose is to bring impactful, vocational training based on job needs in the communities of Chicago's West Side and surrounding Western Suburban area. We believe that community based intervention allows for a wide range of skills, talents and resources to be applied to our efforts. Furthermore, we view our collaboration as a way to engage public and private funders in supporting impactful, cost-effective Vocational Training that is pulled by the community rather than pushed by assumptions that are often misaligned or incorrect.
