The Green Impact Zone congratulates students at the Paseo Academy on the opening of their new store, “Urban Edge.” The students are taking entrepreneurship to a new level with this store, which will feature clothing and art created by the students and operate under a business plan they developed. (Read more about the store in this Kansas City Star article.)

Helping young people develop their entrepreneurial skills is one of the strategies we’re using to transform the Green Impact Zone into a thriving, sustainable community. We’re getting ready to launch our “NEXUS of Excellence” program for young people ages 13-18 who dream of starting their own businesses.
