This workshop will focus on empowering young people to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business. Jennifer Stewart, Deputy Director of More than Words (MTW) will discuss her organization’s approach to offering young people who are in foster care, court involved, homeless, or out of school, the services they need to achieve outcomes in employment, education and self-efficacy as they prepare for adulthood. Jennifer will provide an overview of the program operations from enrollment through participation, to post–program support. The workshop will explore how MTW‘s program activities are organized to integrate business skills acquisition and personal development while building in accountability and high expectations for progressive achievement during and after enrollment.
