BALTIMORE — Baltimore City Mayor Jack Young designated June Youth Rising Month.
On Friday, there was a launch party for Baltimore's Youth Rising Coalition in the Poly/Western High School parking lot on West Cold Spring Lane.
Its a group of 14 to 24-year-old entrepreneurs and youth leaders with a belief in business creation in Baltimore.
The goal is to support youth entrepreneurship programs by offering grant opportunities for young entrepreneurs access to online sales opportunities, networking and more.
"We all just want to bring positiveness in the community... you're not too young to make your own business, to start your own business."
Youth leaders are calling on Baltimore residents to act in solidarity with young people and those who are fighting to dismantle the systems that do not allow all to be free and have access to lives that lead to wholeness.
