“Developing business opportunities—practical marketplace ministry.”
Students in action—young people developing businesses through the practical application of what they have learned. Students and graduates using business as an opportunity to apply knowledge, gain practical experience, and help others by giving something back to Plan Escalon.
Under the supervision and care of Plan Escalon, these young people utilize their skills and knowledge to create something of value. Plan Escalon provides start-up capital to initiate the student businesses, helpful leadership and mentorship, and support these young people to work toward successful accomplishment.
Graduating students may stay to run a business they helped establish. It becomes a way for them to earn a livelihood and to sow back into Plan Escalon. The goal is to eventually establish a marketplace on the Tree of Life property where these local businesses could function.
