where every purchase empowers youth

About US

Every purchase you make at More Than Words goes directly to support young people as they transform their lives. 


We are a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court system, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of  a business.  Youth work approximately 20 hours per week running our bookselling business and learning critical job skills, and also work a second job – their “YOU” job – where they receive support to make progress on personal goals in education, work, and life. 


Our 13 years’ experience demonstrates that when youth are challenged with authentic and increasing responsibilities, and are given high expectations and a culture of support, they can and will address personal barriers to success, create concrete action plans for their lives, and become contributing members of society.


Thank you for supporting our youth with your business.
