Rebel Mission, Vision, Values

Mission

We work to create healthy deliciousness with kids in schools and in communities.

We impact the supply of healthy food by developing food products that are sold to schools.

We impact the demand for healthy food through experiential learning and working directly with kids in schools creating good food.

Vision

Kids want to be healthy, we just need to start listening to them. They want to eat good food- food that is nutrient-dense and is grown, processed, and shared with love. We imagine schools where all kids learn to grow good food, cook good food, buy good food, and eat good food. We imagine kids supporting each other in being as healthy as they can be. We imagine communities coming together to support kids in reaching their fullest potential. 

We are Rebel Ventures. We are young people taking control of our own future. We create healthy deliciousness with kids. We are role models. It’s our job.

Structure

 

Rebel Ventures is an 501(c)3 PA nonprofit corporation. We are a social enterprise engaging youth in leadership and entrepreneurship. We develop and distribute products (healthy deliciousness) directly with and for kids in our community. We are supported by Penn’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships. Our products and projects are designed, tested, and evaluated in partnership with students, staff, and parents at the Netter Center’s K-12 University Assisted Community Schools in West Philadelphia. Every year undergraduate and graduate students and alumni, as well as staff and faculty from the University of Pennsylvania work with Rebel Ventures as mentors and learners through Netter Center sponsored Academically Based Community Service courses and other pathways.
