You get down Into the community and speak to those you wish to affect! Then the game looks a whole lot different! I’m asking for your support to “Jumpstart our Business solutions.” I am asking you to donate or Partner with us. In order to fully maximize this vision we’ll need space, resources, technology, manpower and yes cash. We need you to simply share!
There is no waiting … No tomorrow … We need support Now. I’ve put a lot of sweat equity and all our resources to bring it this far. I have two choices to get support or walk away. Many Others have simply moved on…
If you were to travel through the darker purple areas you’ll see many youth simply “hanging”… there are few spaces in our community to engage those 18-25 in a positive manner.

No one is teaching them how to innovate, test, select, measure and/or make solid business choices!

But if we continue settling, sitting back and waiting… we’ll lose out!
It’s not just the young But Those nearing or at retirement! it’s those at their prime , men and women!
We began working with Startup Platforms, solution meant for a niche group. Soon those individuals expressed concerns about finding suppliers and we added small creative entrepreneurs! We’ve tested our workshops online but were willing to add offline solutions! We built a sustainable model but we had no idea how dire the situation was. Which brings me to reaching out for support!
This is a new addition to our model. However thankfully we were able to run some test
They’ve been under the guidance of the Boy’s and Girl’s Club of America Now As young Adults they mentor the generation behind them!
