Join us Wednesday, August 16th, 5:30-7:30pm as we focus on an up-and-coming nonprofit in the area that we believe is making ripples of change in the community. Defy Ventures is an entrepreneurship, employment, and character development training program for currently and formerly incarcerated men, women, and youth. They believe in “transforming the hustle” of currently and formerly incarcerated Entrepreneurs-in-Training (EITs) by offering intensive leadership development, Shark Tank-style business plan competitions, executive mentoring, financial investment, and startup incubation. Never been to prison? Not sure you want to visit but want to learn more about what this organization is doing to create lasting change? We are inviting Defy’s program manager and volunteer coordinator in to discuss what makes the program so successful and what we can do to help.
