Help these high school startups change the world

Donation protected

In January 2021, sixteen high school juniors will launch their own social enterprises live into the global marketplace.

Each of their businesses is designed to solve a social, environmental, or economic problem in their community.

Their startup costs vary -- some only need around $50 to launch, others need $500 for equipment.  The Oregon High School Social Entrepreneurship Program is 100% self-funded, and student startups must raise the necessary funds to get launched.

If you believe in helping aspiring young entrepreneurs, please give a small dollar amount and share this with others! 

You're not just helping these students -- you're empowering them to make even greater change in their communities and in the world.
