YEMP_620x350Seventeen teens have completed their first week of our summer apprentice program. This is the third year of partnering with Emmanuel Baptist Church to make this program possible. The students work primarily with Myrtle Avenue based businesses, working fifteen hours each week and attending classes to learn about entrepreneurship.

This year’s teens are working with a wide variety of businesses, including: Green in BKLYN, Sandbox Pack & Ship, Brooklyn Sweet Spot, CVS,, Emmanuel Baptist Church Daycare, Ingersoll Community Center, Clinton Hill Animal Clinic, Myrtle Drug Care Corp, the Brooklyn Museum, Neighborhood Housing Services of New York City as well as with MARP.

This is the 9th year of the program, and the third year in partnership with Emmanuel Baptist Church’s Teens That Mean Business Program (TTMB).

The summer program will culminate in student business plan presentations in mid-August.
