Teens Grow Greens - Learn. Grow. Go.

As schoolteachers, Charles and Rachel Uihlein were frustrated that the educational experiences taught to inner-city teens in Milwaukee were not fully preparing them for careers in the real world.

So, in 2014, they founded Teens Grow Greens Inc., a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization to fill in the educational gaps they were seeing first-hand.

“As teachers, we saw a lack of avenues for success for a lot of high school students and a lack of the soft skills needed for the 21st-century workplace. Our end goal was to build an internship that developed those skills through experience and provided connections to future employment and/or education,” said Charles Uihlein, who is executive director of the organization. “Also, we found that it is important for teenagers to have employment experience because those teenagers are more likely to graduate from high school, be employed within the following year and earn more money over their lifetimes.”
