Why shop teen made?
After School Matters provides Chicago teens the opportunity to explore their passions and develop their talents through world-class after school and summer programs across Chicago. Teens work with artisan instructors to perfect their craft and create items such as; Stained Glass, Leather bags, Paintings on Canvas, Blown Glass, Hand painted Furniture & so much more! Not only are teens able to express their voice but they also gain critical skills that help prepare them for future careers, college, & beyond.
All proceeds directly support After School Matters programs, instructors, & our talented teens.
