First comes the greater good, the welfare of others is second, I am third
Ani Shlishi is a nonprofit organization based in Israel, that uses second-hand clothing stores as a medium of providing opportunities of self-advancement to Israel’s youth at risk.
Ani Shlishi’s store operates much like an alternative school, serving youth whose needs have not been addressed by the public education system.
Hiring at-risk youth as salespeople, Ani Shlishi guides participants through a process of experiential learning and skill acquisition involving retail sales and management, leadership, decision-making, and problem-solving. After working at the store, participants earn the opportunity to learn a trade, funded in full through sales from our stores.
