Every tee helps fund after school programing and post-secondary education for teens here in Grand Rapids.

Ambrose is the first social enterprise of WMCAT. We use business mechanisms to create opportunities for students and recent alumni of WMCAT’s Teen Arts + Tech Program. All of our employees are recent graduates of Grand Rapids Public Schools and alumni of West Michigan Center for Arts + Technology’s (WMCAT) nationally recognized Teen Arts + Tech Program.

After a rigorous application process we pick five rising leaders and submerge them into the worlds of screen printing, human centered design, Lean manufacturing, project management, customer service, accounting, communication, marketing and leadership. They learn from seasoned professionals and over the course of one year take over the management reigns of the business.
