We believe that empowerment is the key to unlocking potential in our young people, and we’re working with Gray Matter to help ensure that our next generation has the tools they need to succeed
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 23, 2017
Joshua Mercer Insurance, a Chicago based agency that provides insurance management assistance and financial consultations to communities throughout northeastern Illinois, is joining the Gray Matter organization in launching a joint charity initiative to provide entrepreneurial opportunities to young African American students.
Gray Matter works with a selected group of qualifying students in the region, providing them with workshops on business concepts and real world training which can be directly applied to starting a new venture. Program participants enjoy access to resources, support, and encouragement from a diverse team of leaders invested in the success of local community members.
“We believe that empowerment is the key to unlocking potential in our young people, and we’re working with Gray Matter to help ensure that our next generation has the tools they need to succeed,” says Joshua Mercer, founder and principal agent of Joshua Mercer Insurance.
Mercer and his team are actively working to engage the Chicago community and draw in support for the Gray Matter program by connecting with local families and civic leaders over email and social media platforms. Further publicity is expected following the publication of a full length story on the charity event scheduled for release in a new issue of the Joshua Mercer Insurance online magazine “Our Hometown”: http://joshuamercerinsurance.com/magazines/.
Gray Matter is only the first of many charitable organizations in the Chicago area that Mercer plans to work with in the near future. As new affiliates of the “Agents of Change” charity support movement, the Joshua Mercer Insurance team is committed to assisting a new regional nonprofit every other month.
