This week our Entrepreneurial Team had their first meeting and 17 students attended! Behind Every Door’s @mrstephon_ led the meeting and shared about the kids' activity.
"The kids split up into 4 teams and used Legos to either create a product or a business. Their ideas where then pitched to a panel of “investors” who decided to award one business with an imagined $100,000 loan.
During that time one group felt as though their idea was stolen by another group, so they “sued” the other group for Trademark Infringement. We changed plans and decided to have court. They hired lawyers and we had a Jury. Kea and Cierra were bailiffs while I was the honorable judge.
Needless to say, it was fun."
We're hiring a Chief Storyteller! Our Chief Storyteller will be responsible for media relations, brand strategy and management, social media voice, content creation, and event management.

Between being an engineer building skyscrapers, a pediatrician, and fulfilling God's dream for them - these kids are now daring to build a life that doesn't include poverty. Everything we do through Behind Every Door is to support the dreams of our young friends! 🙌🏾
In honor of #MLKDay, we're sharing with you a snipit of our friend Mitch's perspective. Mitch is a BED staff member who moved to the Village Oaks to better serve the kids.
Martin Luther King, Jr. said "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." Mitch is sharing his love through Jesus to help drive out the darkness that poverty can bring into the communities we serve.
TBT to our WDC Field trip! It is always fun to get out of your normal day to day and take a fun trip to learn new things!
