The SPUT Store

The SPUT Store launched as part of our Employment PLUS program as an effort to educate youth about small business development. EP workers are responsible for creating products, setting prices, marketing, and keeping track of the profits. Proceeds from the SPUT Store go to fund other EP initiatives like the Halloween, Christmas, and Easter parties.

Youth Social Entrepreneurship

Saint Paul Urban Tennis is able to employ 14 youth workers each year to participate in our Employment PLUS (EP) program. EP workers help to facilitate operations within the Eastview Rec Center, such as checking in guests, setting up gym spaces, and selling goods at the concessions stand. In addition to their on the job training, EP participants get valuable life skills training including resume writing, touring and applying to colleges, and mentorship in their chosen career paths. EP workers recently established a Pro Shop, racket stringing service, and online SPUT apparel store..

Check out the EP Pro Shop inside the Eastview Rec Center anytime Monday - Friday between 3pm-5pm!
