Youth-Led Food Truck!

Youth SEED recently began an innovative partnership with Beyond Emancipation to create a youth-led food truck in East Oakland.  A group of youth from Beyond Emancipation who recently completed a culinary training program have been selected to take part in a series of weekly social enterprise workshops with Youth SEED.  In our most recent workshop, BE youth and staff collaborated on a Business Model Canvass, outlining the key elements they will need to develop to transform their vision into reality.  Please contact us if you would like to lend your expertise towards this collaboration.
