Purchase The Publication From One Of Our Vendors

You can purchase StreetWise magazine from any of our vendors. Each vendor makes a commission directly from their sales of our publication. The Magazine Vendor Program is an entrepreneurial employment model in that it provides a flexible employment opportunity via the sales and marketing of StreetWise Magazine.

o Vendors purchase the magazine from the agency for $.90 a copy and resell it at retail for $2, thereby earning a profit of $1.10 per copy.
o The Magazine Vendor Program teaches vendors to learn hard job skills, including salesmanship, marketing, and customer service as well as appropriate workplace behavior (soft skills).
o The earned profits help vendors afford housing, food, clothing, and necessary personal items.

Vendors can be found throughout much of the Chicagoland area. You can locate a vednor by visiting our Vendor Map.

Be sure to look for the official StreetWise vendor badge when purchasing.
