Turning eighteen should be an exciting time in a young person’s life. But for youth involved in the U.S. child welfare system, it can mean aging out of care without a family, home, or the skills and support needed to prepare them for adulthood.
At GOEX, we firmly believe that family is critical to ensuring that children and youth have the best chance for a healthy, happy future. Through the jobs created by our Fair Trade apparel and artisan enterprise, parents gain sustainable, dignified, and fair-wage employment that empowers them to care for their family.
Beyond The Tee
As many of you know, we exist to bridge the gap between community and commerce. Through job creation, we can strengthen families and empower communities. GOEX is an integrated apparel and artisan enterprise designed to (a) create fair wage jobs to break the orphan cycle, and (b) generate profits to care for children.
We allocate our profits into other family-strengthening initiatives of our parent company, The Global Orphan Project. One initiative that GOEX supports in particular is the Transition Academy. This two-year life skills and vocational-technical program equips teenagers who are aging out of care with the skills they need to become independent, thriving adults.
We are just one of many wonderful organizations that are dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of transition-age youth. As a way to encourage and celebrate the excellent work that others are doing to support, empower, and advocate for these young people, GOEX is proudly offering a grant of up to $10,000 in the form of funding and/or credit towards GOEX products and services.
- Up to $10,000 awarded to one recipient per grant cycle
- Recipient may collect grant in the form of funding and/or credit towards GOEX Apparel products and screen-printing services up to a combined total of $10,000.
