Thursday, August 6 / WorkerSpace Lecture Series / 11:30am / Instagram Live Each Thursday, join GlassRoots' Entrepreneurship Instructor, Ellen Brown, for our continuing education series for craft entrepreneurs and small business owners. We’ll bring you inspirational stories, practical information to strengthen your business, live interviews and more!
This week Ellen continues her conversation on the financial fundamentals of small businesses, from capital funding to product pricing.
Friday, August 7 / Finish it Friday / 11:30am / Instagram Live & Facebook & YouTube Due to the Covid-19 health crisis we had to stop studio classes, in some cases leaving our students’ work unfinished and still at GlassRoots’ studios. Join Amira as she completes each project, and learn more about mosaics, our students, and our programs.
This week’s piece was conceived and designed by Amayah, a student in our 2019-20 Youth Entrepreneurial Spirit program (YES). GlassRoots' YESprograms are dedicated to nurturing and guiding the entrepreneurial spirit by teaching an academic-year long course on what it takes to create and maintain a business. Students come from various backgrounds and schools in the greater Newark area to begin their journey as an entrepreneur. Amayah took part in our YES program through the Project Program at North Star Academy.
