Incubator Works is an entrepreneurship program designed to provide at-risk youth ages 16-29 with hands on business developing skills. To gain more knowledge about small business operations and social enterprises, youth will shadow one of Operation Come Home’s five social enterprises over a course of 12 weeks (BottleWorks, BYBO, FarmWorks, FoodWorks or Repurpose). Youth will also participate in 5 workshops to be held at Operation Come Home, and learn how to develop a professional business plan. Once all hours are completed, selected youth will have the opportunity to pitch for a micro grant to start their own enterprise or socially “conscious” business. Mentorship and expertise will be provided for at least 3 months after each business start launches.
