Our mission is to break the cycle of local poverty by training the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial and environmental leaders. Our programs help youth identify their own natural gifts and talents and then teaching them how to monetize these skills and use them to start a small business. We guide students through a dynamic B.A.S.E. curriculum (Business, Art & STEM Experiences), to develop the personal qualities that predict future professional success.
In DC, petty crime is one of the leading causes of incarceration for young people ages 14-24 years old. Many of these arrest are consequences of individuals becoming involved in illegal and unsavory activities as a means to make money. Many of these young men and women feel trapped by poverty and lack any belief that they can actually be successful doing the right things. The goal of our programs are to show youth that they don’t have to do anything illegal, immoral or unethical to make money. Instead, they already possess everything they need to be successful and they just need to learn how to tap into their gifts. By helping young people see their own intrinsic value and teaching the value of hard work, we hope to inspire youth to dream big, to work hard and to use their talents achieve academic, professional and personal success.
