How We're Helping

WellVentions, a job ready training and career exposure program, 

is administered by ProsperRochester, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit social enterprise organization. 

Over the past 8 years, we have delivered programming to 400+ Rochester youth from a variety of city and charter schools. 

Our youth entrepreneurs field train and run their indoor café at the Rochester Public Market, 

where they sell their specialty food products and 

acquire the confidence, business skills, and stamina to successfully transition into a work environment. 

Building a Community of Social Entrepreneurs, One Youth at a Time


We are extremely proud of all of the youth who have been involved in the  WellVentions program.  Whether they're inventing new recipes to evolve the WellVentions business training model for future generations, supporting suicide prevention with an act of kindness and 3+ million supporters, working on a Trauma Healing App so youth can access their safety plan quickly, or starting a food pantry; Wellventions youth are contributing to our community,  With your help, their legacy will live on!
