10 Year Anniversary Partner Feature – United Roots
Youth in Oakland are leading the way towards an equitable, life affirming economy!
At the 2018 People’s Pitch Event, 10 teams of youth from the yearlong Youth Hub Fellowship Program presented their own proposals for businesses designed to solve problems in their own communities. A panel if 18 volunteer judges evaluated the team and awarded each team with access to at least $1000 in seed funding.
The Youth Hub Fellowship is not a competition and creates a community of support for young people to manifest their own visions in their own communities. Check out the video below of the event and click here to read blog posts written by the youth about their social enterprises including natural hair care products, sneaker restoration, music education, diversity in the video game industry, 3D printing and more!
