Program Description

The Possible Project is a youth entrepreneurship center that teaches high school students to start and run their own businesses.

We are a multi-year after school program that offers students the opportunity to gain crucial skills that will open up a world of possibilities. Students learn resilience, professionalism, self-confidence, leadership, teamwork, and a whole host of other abilities that will propel them on a pathway to success.

Our program is a three year, year-round afterschool program. Students move through six progressive levels, gaining important personal and professional competencies in each phase of the program. Our four components are integrated into each phase of the program.
