Planting seeds for local youth-driven enterprise

PLANTING SEEDS FOR LOCAL YOUTH-DRIVEN ENTERPRISE

Growing up in south county, you are more likely to meet up with your friends at an independent cinema and go for a locally made ice cream than you are to hang out at the mall. Your summer job is probably with a small nonprofit, local retail shop, farm or restaurant. You are fortunate enough to be surrounded by a strong culture of independent businesses and a robust network of community banks.
