A Just World in the Making
The Youth Economic Group is an innovative group of high school students in Sullivan County.
We seek to...
- Basement Bags: Our Youth-run Cooperative Business
- Accomplishments and Press
- Youth Entrepreneurship Symposium
- YEG Fest
One of the most powerful tools YEG uses for self- empowerment and community education is the management of their own Cooperative business, 'Basement Bags.' Members design images that they then silkscreen onto tote bags sourced from Envirototes . The business brings out the youth's creativity and leadership, as members learn essential life skills that include: public speaking, marketing, time management, communication, design, and silkscreen production.
The bags are being sold around the state at many events. Contact us to bring a 'Basement Bags' table to your venue.
