2016 Y.E.S! Award Winner with Deborah & Nigel Costolloe

Lydia provides engaging screen-free babysitting, tutoring services, and peer mentoring to high school juniors & seniors engaged in the college selection & application process. We are excited to help Lydia develop her dream business and connect with parents and kids seeking to work with a delightfully creative, outgoing and experienced individual. Stay tuned as we track Lydia’s progress.

If you know a motivated 15-20-year-old interested in starting a business of their own, be sure to watch for Catchlight Painting’s January 2017 call for sponsorship applicants. Lydia sought help to develop her business objectives and funding to purchase supplies and create a website, currently under construction. We look forward to hearing from next year’s Y.E.S! applicants and funding future young entrepreneurs!
