This small storefront nonprofit organization is dedicated to teaching children from ages 10-17 more than just how to create art with glass. Through the process of learning to make beads, tiles and jewelry, those who participate in Glass Roots' programs also learn about business. While making art enriches their lives it also enhances their self esteem. Marketing their goods - giving them prices, packaging them and selling them - offers valuable lessons in responsibility, perseverance and how the world works. Glass roots is also open on weekends for anyone who wants to learn the art of making glass beads.
