Empowering Queens Youth with the Showing Hearts Foundation

Through a partnership with The Showing Hearts Foundation, we recently took part in and sponsored the 2021 Youthpreneur Summit, where youth throughout Queens NYC came out to learn new entrepreneurial skills and pitch their business ideas, Shark Tank style, to a panel of judges for cash prizes.

Founded in 2015, The Showing Hearts Foundation is a Queens-based nonprofit for individuals and organizations making a difference by educating, empowering, and uplifting communities.

One of the organization’s most exciting initiatives is its annual YOUTHpreneur Summit, which URW is pleased to sponsor, focused on educating and empowering children in underserved communities to become owners. After completing their seven-week training course, the students built and pitched their business ideas to a panel of professionals and six students are individually awarded $1,000 in support of their new business. We look forward to building on our partnership as part of our continued commitment to local youth.
