“I’m doing this for my son, I want to work hard and leave something for my son that I didn’t have at his age.”
Eckerd Connects Project Bridge youth Luis, a Project Bridge graduate and current participant in Project 180, met with his Project Bridge team to get a head start on becoming a young entrepreneur. This young man, just 19-years-old, worked with the team to create a business plan and was provided with the supplies and tools to put his dream into action. Luis has already started pressure washing semi-trucks and will expand into homes, businesses, and driveways with his current clientele. “I’m doing this for my son,” Luis said. “I want to work hard and leave something for my son that I didn’t have at his age.”
Stay tuned for more stories just like Luis’ as we work to build our Leadership and Entrepreneurship Development programs with Project Bridge through projects like Project 180 and Elite 60.
