The vision behind the program is detailed on in the presentation below:
We have established a marketplace literacy program and now set up maker spaces in rural and urban locations across Illinois. The partners listed below allow us to leverage areas of expertise across the University. UI Extension Unit 27 and Bethel New Life in Chicago are the implementation partners
This is a collaborative, change-oriented program, drawing expertise from across multiple disciplines for outreach into disadvantaged communities. We aim to empower members of these communities to participate in the marketplace by enhancing their “making” literacy.
