Hi, We’re Helix

Our name connects to our mission and vision. We see high unemployment for 16-24 year olds, and neighborhoods in need of small business services as two major Chicago issues. We address these by opening neighborhood businesses that employ high school students.

There are many people and parts that create the DNA of a neighborhood. Our Helix logo represents a portion of this.

One side of our double helix logo are community needs, on the other are unemployed 16-24 year olds, our bridge between the Helices are our businesses.

The businesses provide services to meet community needs, jobs to unemployed 16-24 year olds, revenue to support our skills development and entrepreneurial training.
