Full Circle 360, a nonprofit youth ministry in Pine Bluff, received a $10,000 grant from the Southeast Arkansas Economic Development District.  The grant was awarded for their Youth Opportunities Program for providing youth with opportunities work, learn, and give back to their communities.

Full Circle 360 is a youth ministry, founded by Alexander Price, that provides teens with job training so they can run a store; the store, in turn, funds other teens’ training plus additional programs and services for the community.  While fun and fellowship are regular activities, job training for teens is the core program.   The teens learn to apply for a job, interact with customers, and handle retail store responsibilities before joining the retail crew at minimum wage.  Full Circle 360 is located at 1415 South Main Street in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

The grant was awarded by the Southeast Arkansas Economic Development District, an organization that fosters local and regional development in southeast Arkansas communities.  They do so by supporting communities and organizations that are building an educated workforce, ensuring infrastructure necessary for business, and engaging in other job-building and business-friendly endeavors with the long-term goal of economic development for the region.
