A team of teens is running a nonprofit that’s feeding kids and teaching lessons in business and health. Every Wednesday, a West Philadelphia test kitchen is teeming with teenagers.

“It’s youth power all the way,” said 17-year-old Simin Deveauxbray.

These students are part of Rebel Ventures. It’s a nonprofit business run by high schoolers in partnership with the Netter Center for Community Partnerships at the University of Pennsylvania.
