Steve Mariotti quote
Monday: Steve Mariotti, NFTE

Who doesn’t love a great entrepreneurship story? As an added bonus, @Steve Mariotti’s story is about innovation and equity in education. 

While teaching for six and a half years, Steve gained insight into how to successfully motivate his toughest students—teaching them how to run a business. His perceptions and learnings inspired him to create the @Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), a global educational nonprofit focused on bringing the power of entrepreneurship to youth in low-income communities.

Thursday: Youth Dreams: Taynara Goncalves 

Taynara Goncalves dream is to become a physician. 

Through Stone Soup’s program, I was given the necessary tools and the support to understand the college process. Stone Soup has given me opportunities that I otherwise wouldn’t have had. It has not only guided me to achieve my dreams but has allowed me to help others in achieving theirs. Being a facilitator has allowed me to grow as a leader and has brought many blessings.

Read about Judy Wicks and her journey. As the owner of Philadelphia's White Dog Cafe, she "lured innocent people into social activism" by getting people from different worlds to sit down to a good dinner and talk with each other.
