We provide D.C.'s Opportunity Youth with entrepreneurship training.
Many young people in our community want to be their own boss. They are entrepreneurs. But they don’t have the mentorship nor the means to create their own business. Some make the wrong decision by applying their entrepreneurial skills to illegal activity. For too long, the U.S. has led the democratic world with imprisoning people because of a misguided belief that prison will reform them. We have used a stick to punish for far too long.
Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty by helping entrepreneurial Opportunity Youth create businesses of their own that will last a lifetime.
We provide the mentors, expertise, support, and access to capital needed for entrepreneurs to succeed.
To create pathways to the middle class for D.C.’s Opportunity Youth (ages 18-24).
YOU CAN help us make a change in our communities. By donating you will be providing the expertise and support necessary to destroy the pipeline to prison and help at risk youth become entrepreneurs.
