Next in Nonprofits 68 – Cookie Cart with Matt Halley


Cookie Cart “provides teens 15 to 18 years old with lasting and meaningful work, life and leadership skills through experience and training in an urban nonprofit bakery.” It is also one of the earlier examples of a charitable, social enterprise in the Twin Cities area.
