Aspire Growth Co-founder, Ty Edwards, and Aspire Growth staff, Abraham Kidanemariam, work with NewHolly and Rainier Vista youth to develop aspirations, successful academic approaches and future goals.
Over the summer, NewHolly youth participated in a program where they were mentored by local business owners and given entrepreneurial opportunities to develop a business plan and bring their product to market. Their business, Wired Cafe, launched in September. This entirely youth-run mobile business will feature a range of drinks including smoothies, green juices, tea, coffee and espresso drinks. Business profits will fund educational scholarships for students living in low-income public housing.
