IF YOU WANT TO LIVE LONG, DON’T LIVE HERE…
INNER CITIES USA
To work with inner-city, community groups, including male and female juvenile offenders, to chisel/modify street survival knowledge into a functional business enterprise, shifting ideas focus from illegal commodities, such as drugs, to legal commodities, while establishing the relationship nexus between drug dealing, cash flow, and legal business, and promoting teamwork consensus versus fear-based hierarchies.
Our vision is to increase the presence, success and visibility of at-risk minority youths by transforming survivalist skills, honed by the hardships within their community, into viable business enterprises. (Survival is act of surviving; to stay living.)
The School ‘Em team will enter a community with the goal of mentoring and guiding the youth to create their success model using their creative ideas combined with the life wisdom of our mentors. Using program resources (mentors) banking/finance, corporate structure-legal marketing/branding, they will build viable business entities that each teen believes will help improve his/her future and current living situation. We operate under the understanding that program mentors do not know fully know what is specifically going to assist each teen, but we can use program resources to show each teenager that they already have a skill set and street experience that will be vital and valuable—even provide a comparative advantage--to achieving success in the legitimate business world.
