NEW! INTRODUCTION TO ENTREPRENEURSHIP Do you have a great idea for starting your own small business (microenterprise)? Not sure that traditional community employment is right for you? Are you ready to be your own boss?

Continuing Professional Development, in partnership with the Illinois Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the Lake County Area Entrepreneurship Initiative, is pleased to offer this first class in a series of two designed to prepare people with disabilities for successful self-employment as entrepreneurs!

Each student has the choice to identify a business mentor who may accompany them to class at no extra charge. This is optional but highly encouraged. Building a network of support is very important to a successful microenterprise.

Microenterprise is the smallest form of business. Microenterprises are typically born out of a person’s passion, interest or skill in something particular. Owning and operating a microenterprise is an effective means for a person with a disability to earn income and have more community involvement in a way that provides flexibility and accommodates his or her needs and interests.

"I just missed being killed by about three seconds." — Christine Burke praising CLC’s defensive driving course.

(847) 543-2100 (volunteering) judicialservices@clcillinois.edu

Christine Burke of Lake Barrington enrolled in our Defensive Driving Course. While driving less than a week later, she used a lesson from the course to narrowly avoid getting smashed broadside by a car that ran a red light. Burke said that she hesitated at the intersection, recalling a tip she learned in the defensive driving course called "delayed acceleration" waiting two or three seconds before entering an intersection if yours is the first car there. She credits this decision with saving her life.
