Environmental Living and Learning Center

The master plan for the Gasoline Alley Foundation community project includes the integration of sustainable living, business, recreation and community. Our main goal is the creation of an environmental living and learning center ‘off the grid’, connected to a small business incubator, adjacent to a ‘bike path’, along the Mill River that flows through a park surrounded by Victorian homes – a full community of sustainable living.

 Youth Program

Our neighborhood is filled with young men that have not graduated from High School, convicted of a crime, never held a job, have little if any male role models, hungry for a better life and inspired to become solid men. We want to train these young men to live here, work and own a Social Enterprise, graduate to home ownership, and become prosperous productive members of the community.

Social Enterprise Development

Social Enterprises employ the practices and principles of business to solve social and environmental challenges. Our goal is to connect Business, NGO’s and Governments in a League of Social Enterprise that compete with one another for an improved quality of life. We want the League located in Springfield and have a team from Springfield win the competition.
