Artisan: The Enterprising Kitchen, Chicago
The Enterprising Kitchen provides transitional employment and life skills training to disadvantaged women in Chicago working toward self-sufficiency. Women from across the city are able to participate in an intensive, but individually oriented workforce development program that includes paid employment, work and life skills training and individualized support services.
In April 2003 Shajuana was referred to The Enterprising Kitchen, Inc. (TEK), from the Cook County Sheriff's female furlough program. "I had made some poor choices and mistakes, but I wanted to get back on the right track." Shajuana was an excellent participant, and after completing six months of training, she was hired to work in the shipping room. When TEK needed to train a new soap maker, Shajuana quickly learned to be a soap maker.
Determined to continue making positive changes, Shajuana enrolled in the Illinois School of Health Careers to receive certification as a medical assistant. Shajuana completed all in-class coursework, and an externship in order to obtain the required 160 training hours; her first step toward becoming a registered nurse. While attending school in the evenings for eighteen months, Shajuana maintained her employment with TEK.
Shajuana is a remarkable young woman, and truly a role model for other participants. The Enterprising Kitchen has become a source of motivation in her life. She proudly states, "The Enterprising Kitchen helps you get back on track. The staff helps you try to accomplish anything you want to accomplish."
