Students What They Say


My kids need something where they can work at home, go to school and be hands on. They won’t stop talking about it.

This is the best kept secret in Austin (Chicago).

The curriculum of Workforce High changed my life. I accomplished what I never thought that I could.

Workforce High is what we need. We need to work and go to school and it should be fun.

Since enrolling, she has started multiple businesses including NUBIS, her fashion pillow and baby clothing lines. Latandra also is training for a job in manufacturing upon her graduation. “I want to continue to use my art to grow NUBIS, while working at a career job to buy my own home and raise a family,” she says. “I want to continue to use my art to grow NUBIS, while working at a career job to buy my own home and raise a family...”



After being released from youth detention at age 16, Jorge was determined to make a better life for himself. He enrolled in the META24 entrepreneurial training program, completed the curriculum and started his first business, making wooden game sets and custom furniture through his company, The Built King. Drawing on that experience, Jorge now operates landscaping/gardening, snow removal and paving businesses. Through his talent, hard work and determination, he has turned his life around and is on a path to sustainable entrepreneurial success.



Dejon, a recent META24 graduate and young “soap” entrepreneur, describes META24 as life-changing. “At first, I didn’t think that I could possibly own a business or run a retail store in my own neighborhood. But I launched an all-natural soap business, broke even and continued to invest in my business. Now, I am planning on going to college close to home to raise my son and hire folks from my neighborhood to run my business,” he says. “I didn’t think that I could possibly own a business in my own neighborhood... Now I am planning to... hire folks from my neighborhood to run my business.”
