We were shocked to find out how many teens and young adults in our programs started their own businesses in the midst of the pandemic. Not only had they started these businesses, but they were thriving! WXYZ's News Anchor, Glenda Lewis, came out to visit us. It aired in August and we are delighted to share it with you! The segment also highlights our summer work with Kindergarten through eighth grade youth. Check this out! https://youtu.be/dUkUxgpgVuc
