Again, it is important to surround yourself with outstanding people.
Brent Droege is one such young man. He has been volunteering at Agape Corner, where I once taught, for three years or more. He often helps with my parent’s class of first and second graders.
Today he gets kudos from none other than the Dean of the Business School at NC State, my alma mater.
Brent Droege, a junior in the NC State University College of Management’s bachelor of accounting program, is working out a plan that he hopes will help a number of troubled youth in his community begin to realize the potential for their own futures.
Droege is in the process of launching a seasonal lawn care business – The Agape Lawn Company – in collaboration with Agape Corner Boarding School in Durham, North Carolina. The new business, which Droege named after the school, will help youth ages 14 to 22 by providing them an opportunity to run a business in which they can learn skills, generate income and get a taste of entrepreneurship.
If any of you reading are in NC, please consider reading the whole thing and hiring these young people to do your work.
