What is the problem you found?

How might we help homeless people obtain the qualifications required to obtain a job?

Customer / Problem

Our customers are homeless people that may never have had a chance to finish high school or attend university. Their current situation leaves them with little chance to obtain a job and start a career. 

What Is Your Solution?

"Bus To Business" is a service that takes homeless people to a university once a week. At these universities, they will be given the opportunity to volunteer, observe and listen to speeches from professionals. Being exposed to these opportunities will help provide homeless people with the skills and confidence required to help obtain a job and improve their future.
