Activism + Entrepreneurship
Often times, choosing between creating a business where you sell vs. an organization that does community work or raises awareness is a difficult decision. However, you can turn your business into a form of teen advocacy. We've laid out some ideas for you below!
A great way to incorporate the two is through donating some of the funds you make.
Whether it's 5% or 50% of your profits, telling customers that a portion of how much they pay will go to organizations not only increases awareness of striking issues, but also helps a cause.
Sell products that rase awareness itself.
These could be in the form of LGBTQ+ ally mugs, or sections of your business website that you dedicate to posting about issues taking place worldwide. Either way, using your platform in order to spread awareness is always a great way to show solidarity.
