YEP Holiday Market – Buy handmade gifts and support local teens!

The Youth Entrepreneurship Project (YEP) is a program at Aquinas Center where youth learn about small business development and develop marketing, budgeting, life skills, and problem solving skills. All products for sale are handmade by YEP teens. This program emphasizes economic justice through cooperative labor. It is funded locally through the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).
