Last month we announced a new initiative to offer a high school diploma program at CAC! God has blessed us with this opportunity to serve our neighborhood, and we believe it will benefit many who were unable to complete high school. The program is self-paced and available anywhere there is internet!
Additionally, our East Side Entrepreneurs youth business class has been hard at work on their "Christmas on the Beach" jewelry collection. We have shells and coral pieces from our travels along with an assortment of precious and semi-precious stones, some of which were purchased from The Bead Place, while the rest comes from Turkey, North Africa, and Central America.
The money raised goes towards the youth starting their own businesses here in East St. Louis after completing the course next May. We plan on having everything ready for Black Friday! If you are a small business owner who wants to share your knowledge and experience with our kids, contact Seth Hamilton at 618-874-5615 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
