When you were 16-years-old, you were likely playing baseball or wasting your days in front of your PlayStation or Xbox. There is often a misconception that the next generation is doomed, but it seems there is still a glimmer of hope out there. Just look towards Chicago, Illinois. A small group of high school students within the Rogers Park neighborhood has formed it own business, Webcreators.
The group, which consists of several members is capable of communicating in ten different languages. Suffice to say, they plan on taking on clients of all ethnicities. So, what do they do? Well, the students build and manage websites for local businesses. They handle all aspects of their client’s online presence, including social media, advertising and search engine optimization.
Sixty percent of the business located in Rogers Park have no website. This offers plenty of potential clients for the boys. The students, who are trained by professionals at the Chicago Math and Science Academy, are paid ten dollars and hour for their services. Meanwhile, the businesses pay a substantially decreased fee, when compared to what other agencies would charged. Suffice to say, the arrangement is a win-win situation for everyone.
