Project Description

Following the model of New Life Centers, “life together makes a difference,” Arise Creations is a program that believes that walking alongside the girls in our community can change the direction of our youth.  Since 2009, the program has served middle and high school youth in the neighborhood of Humboldt Park on Chicago’s west side.

Arise Creations is a youth-fueled, creative business that seeks to empower, encourage and educate youth through the vehicles of entrepreneurship and discipleship [mentorship].  Our hope is to see the youth achieve these goals through creating and selling handmade jewelry. Each one of the youth that enter the program learn, create and sell their pieces, equipping them with job skills while giving them a safe space to express themselves and grow.  Each day the girls are equipped and empowered to be agents of change in their community.  In addition to this, participants also engage in community craft fairs, home parties, and sell at other events and venues.
