Over the past 7 months, the Fellows of Project Teen-Seed613 have been working diligently, exploring entrepreneurship and social innovation through the creation of their own social impact projects. Join us on Thursday, May 2nd as the Fellows pitch their social impact projects to the community. Project Teen-Seed613 is a social innovation and entrepreneurship fellowship for teen girls. Throughout the program, teen fellows discuss pressing social issues and create positive change in their communities through entrepreneurial efforts. The Hadassah Foundation has provided generous support for the creation and implementation of JCC Chicago’s Project Teen-Seed613.
