Young people aged 16-19 are welcome to apply for the new training program. This new program will see students working on a new perfume line called Immortal which pays homage to Henrietta Lacks.

One of the most important organizations in Chicago that are changing young lives and their future is pleased to announce their next exciting program. THE BLACK ECOSYSTEM which was founded by Candice Cunningham wants to create an army of entrepreneurial Chicago teens. The new 16-week entrepreneurship training will see 16-19-year olds working on a new perfume line called Immortal.

Candice Cunningham, wants young people to apply for the 16-week cohort which begins November 20th, 2019. It will see students who have applied for the program and passed the application process work on the new perfume line from start to finish.

This exciting program will give students so many different important skills. They will learn the whole process of starting up a new product and brand. The skills that will be taught and gained are skills that people starting out in business would love to learn. What makes the program even more special is the fact that Henrietta’s grandson is involved.

This is an opportunity that does not come along that often, and an opportunity that young adults in other parts of the USA would love to have in their community. It will help to teach young adults important business skills that they can translate into their personal, career, or business life.

The program has already gained huge attention due to the success of previous programs. Lots of people have already applied for the 16-week program including Dorothy Jeanuis, a 12-year-old Bachelor’s Degree graduate.

Candice Cunningham, who aims to train at least 500 successful teen entrepreneurs and change their future wants all young adults to apply for the course and grab the opportunity that is available to them.
