In 2019 TGi started offering scholarship opportunities to youth who wanted to express themselves through clothing as a way for us to invest in youth who wanted to explore the possibility of entrepreneurship.
The design shown to the left is inspired by LaNaya Purnell. She is a two-time cancer survivor and wanted to express that through clothing. Each scholarship recipient gets one fully designed idea by TGi and gets a startup inventory of t-shirts on behalf of TGi.
Small Business Experience
Scholarship recipients receive ongoing support for selling the shirts, marketing, restocking, recording sales, determining profit, and one-on-on guidance on how to run a small business.
