Entrepreneur Spotlight: Brittany Harris
“LAUNCH allowed me to create a business plan that would be the start of something incredible, and provided essential strategies that enabled me to reach my objectives. During this 10-week course, we were provided with knowledgeable individuals who were eager to assist our developments. We were allowed to brainstorm and collaborate amongst people who were welcoming and thrilled to learn...An amazing and purposeful journey is truly what LAUNCH provided for me during my development of The Passage.”
As a teacher at Hardy Elementary, Brittany Harris was determined to do something about the low literacy scores in the Hamilton County School District. But what?
Her first thought was that in order for her students to reach their full potential,they needed to have parent involvement. Next, she needed to get parents to show up. Brittany knew she was going to have to find an innovative way to reach them.
She decided that the best way was to make a space that provided the energy of learning, but was also mobile. It was then she got the idea to turn a bus into a mobile classroom that can meet the community at their front door, which she would come to call The Passage.
