THE STORY:

It is a dream I have long held. To build a facility that houses a variety of small businesses (like a bank, a retail shop, a restaurant) to offer a practical life education opportunity to underprivileged kids. One large building would house a 'community,' if you will, where kids came come during the summer and after school on an income based scale or free. The service would rely heavily on adult volunteers and retirees who can mentor kids through a variety of business skills -giving them knowledge that can help them decide on careers and get a jump start on their career when they finish school. It would also rely heavily on corporate sponsorship - for example, one of the 'stores' could be sponsored by UPS, or the bank would be sponsored by a local bank.
In addition, there would be a large vegetable garden where the kids would learn to grow healthy foods successfully, that could then be used to help others learn how to cook in the 'restaurant.'
We would give kids a huge advantage by teaching them about finances, science, computer technology, and even inspire an entrepreneurial spirit by giving them the tools to create their own ideas for a business.
