How will your idea make a difference in Saint Paul? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

For teens managed by teens through adult leadership and supervision.
Generate jobs, responsibility and stable income for youth and adults in
St. Paul. We train and strengthen the three primary types of attention:
The ability to reason, form concepts, and solve problems using
unfamiliar information and new lifestyle concepts. The most impact that
it will give to St. Paul is employment and positive constructive work
ethics for teens. Healthy lifestyles and healthy eating habits will
impact our community in a long run. Healthy eating is a generating
trend that we must begin to incorporate into the everyday lives of our children, which will reduce the large growing obesity in our youth and our community.
