Support Youth Entrepreneurs



Hang happiness in your home today! Handcrafted welcome signs as well as other youth-designed products are now available to purchase through our e-commerce site.

Participants of The Foundry's Youth Entrepreneurship Program employed the skills they learned this past semester in digital fabrication and making to craft quality products for you! Each item you purchase directly supports student stipends as they learn how to run a business.

The program is supported by the Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation.

CEO and President Paul Ciminelli was super excited to receive a surprise welcome sign in the mail as the students practiced packaging and shipping last week.

-------------OTHER HAPPENINGS @THE FOUNDRY------------


Foundry Friends - Help us welcome the newest member of our team - our Youth Business Director and FoundryMade Manager- ADAM IANNI!

Adam is a former hobo and roustabout (his words!) who found his calling making things for and with communities. An experienced educator and maker, he believes that everyone should have access to the means of production. As the former Education director for GObike Buffalo, he helped build a community center where anyone could learn the intricacies of bicycle mechanics and find a place they could call their own. Adam loves woodworking, playing with trash, dust collection, giant robots, and participatory learning environments.

YOU CAN MEET ADAM at our Open House on July 17th and/or bring a friend and take a class with him on July 22nd!
