About the Company:

Seeds for Success is a for-profit, benefits corporation which seeks to serve students from the Maya Angelou High School and Young Adult Learning Center, along with their families and communities by:

- Engaging and empowering them to reach their full potential, to become successful entrepreneurs, workforce members, community and business leaders.
- Increasing their access to jobs and viable income-generating opportunities.
- Providing them with work readiness training and employable skills.
- Bridging the gap between education and employment in a safe, known and motivating environment.

To accomplish this, we offer landscaping, snow and ice management and junk removal services to commercial and residential clients. We teach students the skills necessary to work for and run a business and create business leaders and entrepreneurs through hands on experiential training. We offer a different approach than the traditional one of responding to young people in a risk or problem frame and shift toward proactively building skills, fostering healthy relationships, and supporting youth to be active partners in their development efforts. We provide them with the knowledge,skills, and support they need so they can thrive as adults, enjoy good health, succeed economically, and make meaningful contributions to their communities.
