What is The Possible Project?

The Possible Project is an afterschool program that uses entrepreneurship as a framework to close the skills and opportunities gap facing young people with untapped potential.

We guide students through a dynamic curriculum, including hands-on work experience and individualized career planning, to develop the personal qualities that predict future professional success.

In short, we believe anything is possible!

What We Do

We help our students develop the personal and professional skills necessary for lifelong success.

Problem and Solution

We provide the space, resources, and support students need to succeed in high school—and beyond.

Our Impact

The Possible Project changes lives. Read what our students have to say.

Join us in Changing Lives

We teach our students that anything is possible. But our program wouldn’t be possible without the support of volunteers and partners from the business community and beyond. Learn how you can help close the opportunity gap and create a brighter future for our students.

Sole Survivor

Sole Survivor is an online shoe consignment shop. The mission of Sole Survivor is to provide customers the freshest kicks for an affordable price that is guaranteed to be lower than retail price. Mitchell buys old and new shoes from people at his school and online for a low price and resells for profit. Much of the time this requires him to fix up old shoes before he sells but it's all a part of the process! Mitchell started in Fall 2014 and initially created a homemade sneaker cleaner but has since focused the business to specialize in sneaker resale. Since 2014 he has grossed between $20-25k. This past term he grossed $5.5-6k. His goal this year is to expand his business in order to take it to the next level and save up for college expenses. He is putting 100% of his profits into a college fund!
