Future Youth Nation
As a Public Benefit Corporation, the primary focus of all enterprise activities is to demonstrate a new model of economics for our children. Funding of a Youth Cooperative Institute (Teenchanger) is our primary purpose. In this instance, a co-operative is an autonomous association of students united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled youth enterprise. This self-liquidating enterprise model is assimilated back into our modern world of economics by a process called “redemption“.
Redemption becomes a vital part of understanding the human-value of cooperative education. Our next generation of youth are taught the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others. These become the early life lessons of a future society that moves us forward in our quest for social prosperity.
“Cookie Jar Economics” is the key to this prosperity. Educational books and games are the by-products of this education. Fundraising becomes a joint-venture between adults and students. Therefore, the distribution of books and games becomes the core enterprise model for our merit-based worker cooperative. Our adults support this cooperative with the production of game based tokens or game cards.
Join the game. Future Youth Nation. We’re the bright tomorrow.
