Our mission is to position our Youth to become major players in this Industry while creating fashionable products made with sustainable materials that reduces the carbon footprint on the earth. We will have our Youth work with New York-based manufacturing networks to produce our products locally. The plan is to have the dollar rotate within the Community several times before exiting.
Using masters in their respective fields, Pursuing Purpose Program will be multi-phased and consist of 12-hours of learning per week + workshop time. This curriculum will begin with Self-Discovery training in each session to retrain their mind to effectively receive and process information given to them.
Youth will be taught the fundamentals of design by creating collections under the 2-fashion brands that we own: HealthJox & CorDuRoi. We will teach them how to produce fashion shows to market their designs. They will develop the skills to produce music with state-of-the-art equipment.

Youth will be paid a stipend as they learn; once products are sent to market, Youth will receive a percentage of sales for items they design; Youth will get points for music they produce; Youth will gain followship from the podcasts they produce.
