The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To advance sustainable choices that enhance economic opportunities which preserve open space, wildlife habitat, farm and ranchlands, and quality of life for future generations.
We are committed to the people, the culture, the communities and the breathtaking landscapes of the Northern Rockies. We want future generations to thrive in this remarkable place and be stewards of the region's resources so that the generations that follow will benefit from the quality of life we enjoy today. One program that Western Sustainability Exchange manages is the Young Entrepreneurial Stewardship (YES) Program. The program focuses on entrepreneurial education and business skill-building through our Young Entrepreneurial Stewardship (YES) program which targets low-income children. Children learn how to: create a rudimentary business plan, understand costs, pricing and margins, make change, promote their product, balance supply with demand and how to save one week's profits to invest in the materials they will need to create their product the next week.
