More Than Words

More Than Words (MTW) empowers youth who are in foster care, court-involved, homeless or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business.

The Wagner Foundation shares MTW's belief, that when system-involved youth are challenged with authentic and increasing responsibilities in a business setting, and are given high expectations and a culture of support, they can and will address personal barriers to success, create concrete action plans for their lives, and become contributing members of society.

More Than Words is a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business.
