Barely Canadian was initially launched as a vehicle to show our children how to build a business from the ground up. We have seen firsthand how valuable this process has been, which is why we created the Fosterprenuer Inc. program to offer the opportunity of entrepreneurship and basic business skills to as many foster youth as possible.
Together with our nonprofit partner #I’mKinderThanThat.org, our Fosterprenuer program teaches foster youth basic business skills, e-commerce know-how, and marketing strategies that can result in tangible revenue streams and help each child to create a thriving and meaningful future for themselves.
Through our Fosterprenuer program, foster youth create their own business mission and vision by designing their own unique brands and visuals that are screen printed onto Barely Canadian t-shirts and hoodies. The Fosterpreneur’s products are available for purchase through our online store. The revenue from each sale goes directly to the foster youth’s business.
