PHENND Fellows - Rebel Ventures Curriculum Coordinator
Rebel Ventures is a high-school student-run nonprofit food enterprise based in Philadelphia creating healthy deliciousness with kids in schools and in our communities. Our objectives: A) to increase access to nutritious and tasty food (healthy deliciousness) for kids; and B) to engage high school students in meaningful job experiences using entrepreneurship as a strategy for positive youth development. Every aspect of our nonprofit is run by high school students, from meetings with partners to our product development and sales. Youth Power, Teamwork, and Democracy are core Rebel Values. We develop products and educational activities that reach thousands of students, create videos for youth, run marketing campaigns, steward partnerships, speak at conferences, and learn through each experience. We create a product called Rebel Crumbles that are served on the breakfast menu in all Philly public schools. Since 2017, 1.5 million Crumbles have been served to kids in Philadelphia. As peer role models and leaders, our crew has the unique opportunity to directly impact kids beyond the school breakfast menu. So, over the past two years, we designed a set of youth-powered, project-based learning activities targeting cafeterias, classrooms, and whole schools. Currently, the Rebel crew is operating on a hybrid model to address challenges arising from the pandemic and create healthy deliciousness in the real world. We have two full crew meetings in person each week. HS students and mentors are also collaborating in small groups and working independently to get projects done. As we are all learning to adapt to a ‘new normal’, we are still developing virtual communication and remote learning skills that will be crucial post-COVID.
