Tumbleweed T-shirt printing business takes off

by francine Hardaway on May 6, 2008

We’ve (my Foundation and my partners) been helping Tumbleweed Youth Development Services launch a” start up” –a Drop In Gallery to sell the art of runaway youth that also houses a t-shirt design and print business. Both businesses have taken off!

This is probably the most rewarding thing I do every day(and everything is rewarding); helping disadvantaged youth learn entrepreneurship skills. It’s so empowering for them.

The Arizona Entrepreneurship Conferences raise money for the Opportunity Through Entrepreneurship Foundation to fund the programs. Money raised from entrepreneurs goes to other entrepreneurs. So thanks, all the peeps who help me by speaking and volunteering at the conferences…this is the net-net. Otherwise known as the win-win.

A formerly homeless youth looks on in the background. He’s on the business team.
