Having an entrepreneurial mindset is an advantage for teens in our fast-changing world. This program educates teens on the fundamentals of running a socially responsible business. Teens increase their skills, confidence and aspirations to effect social change learn financial literacy, collaboration, adaptability, innovation, humility and networking.
Our teen run-enterprise provides entrepreneurial training and paid internship opportunities, through the development and distribution of teen-crafted, all natural, body care products.
Our locally-made products are handcrafted by teens infusing their garden grown herbs with pure essential oils. We use organic, sustainable and local ingredients whenever possible. The full line includes natural soaps relaxing shea balms, non-aluminum deodorants and soothing lip balms.
We also embed ‘Social’ into entrepreneurship with the BOGO Project. With every purchase of a Ruckus body care product, we donate a product to an organization that serves people in need. Buy a product — we give a product! Cool idea huh? We think so!
Ruckus Entrepreneurs really brought me out of my shell. Concordia showed me how to take action, how to be a leader, and how to help myself when no one else can.Alan, a Concordia Place teen
As a learning organization, Concordia Place is committed to continued improvement. We have learned that distinguishing between the Concordia Place and Concordia Day brands was not necessary.
Starting May 1, all visitors to concordiaday.org will be redirected to day.concordiaplace.org
By unifying around the sole use of the Concordia Place brand, we will provide clarity and focus on our mission to serve families and provide both care and education for their children.
