The Youth Economic Group is a youth-run cooperative in the Catskills of New York. The group is comprised of several high school youth in Sullivan County ranging from 14-19 years old. Through their business, Bags for Justice, they create their own designs based on social justice issues they care about and silk-screen them onto bags and shirts. I worked with them for a year to assist in their business growth, provide mentorship, and support their artistic processes.
