As part of the plan for sustainability of the Youth Global Leadership program, Philanthropiece‘s crew of teen changemakers are engaged in meaningful entrepreneurship activity.  The YGLers spent six months developing an entrepreneurship activity that they felt was aligned with their vision, morals, and approach to community development.  They landed with a small business enterprise to sell fair-trade, hand-made crafts from women artisan’s in Latin America.  The YGLers had great success selling the goods and raising awareness at the Lyons Artisan Market in August.  They will be at the Holiday World Market this Sunday, November 20th from 1:30-5:30. Come check out their beautiful artisan goods from Guatemala and Ecuador, and spend some time speaking with them about the amazing change they are making in their local and global communities!
