Washington, DC - Group Interactive, Inc. today unveiled a strategic partnership with Chicago, IL based Wheatle Peart, a social consulting business that helps businesses become socially responsible through helping them implement economic development projects globally. Under the partnership they will launch a series of co-branded socially responsible initiatives aimed at rebuilding local economies across the globe by engaging teen entrepreneurs at a grassroots level.
"Whether people realize it or not the economic crisis in America is a global concern. Two thirds of the world's population lives on less than $2 a day and they depend on us to be innovative and fiscally strong. Their youth are accustomed to having a tremendous amount of responsibility and our youth are struggling to find jobs. So it is natural and timely that they collaborate with each other to create socially responsible micro businesses that will create economic sustainability and directly impact their future," said Group Interactive Founder, Shonika Proctor.
Under the partnership Group Interactive will provide coaching services to teens and support them with creating and building their niche businesses utilizing their Teen Entrepreneur Success Secrets book and Teen C.E.O. Blueprint,which is the branded curriculum and training program that Proctor co-developed with her teen entrepreneurs. Wheatle Peart will focus on Global Program Management and Development and will work hands on with strategic and beneficiary affiliate partners.
