As a part of our commitment in low-income communities and developing countries, UNIFI is working with at-risk areas of Washington, DC, North America, Nicaragua, Central America and Nigeria, East Africa. The organization affords our participants opportunities to enroll in value added programs/services of advanced education and experience that is used to better serve others within our outreach areas. This exposure steers our youth on the path of self-discovery, self-expression, self-governance, and self-sufficiency.
Started in 2006, our entrepreneurship program drives the economical and social progress of residents in underserved communities by teaching youth and young adults to become business oriented. Participants of the program learned of business strategies from current events, expert advice, and from small business owners. These emerging entrepreneurs learned how to gauge if their idea is feasible, develop a business plan, build a brand, market their product/service, identify capital and etc.
Currently, UNIFI is gearing up for 2013's entrepreneurship program in Baltimore, MD. UNIFI will promote economic vitality for the under-served and under-valued Penn-North/Druid Heights community through the provision of technical assistance and accommodations for small and disadvantaged businesses at our location at 1378 West North Avenue. These activities will further our vision to ameliorate health disparities in the Penn-North community through the elimination of unsafe and hazardous conditions while also decreasing economic inequalities and enhancing the aesthetic value of the community in relation to the city.
