February 28 saw an excellent Mastering the Marketplace workshop at Bethel New Life in Chicago. The Chicago Housing Authority made it possible to offer the workshop to participants in their family self-sufficiency program. We look forward to continuing monthly workshops with their participation.
So far, we have learned that 90% of the participants are interested in starting some kind of business to either supplement their income or go into business full-time. Student interaction was piqued by the 3-D printing and consumer-literacy portions of the program.
