Target Evolution's mission to educate budding entrepreneurs in underserved communities is to be commended. We learned about this outstanding non-profit organization from one of our members, and decided to pair its Teen Biz Camp with our Junior Chamber of Commerce. We could not be more pleased with their offerings, which help us further our mission to equip and train entrepreneurs, and the skills and techniques learned by our Junior Chamber members are unparalleled. Target Evolution's passion to see the kids succeed is an added plus. Additionally, they are solid in observing non-profit governance standards.

We look forward to continuing our fruitful relationship with Target Evolution. --- Carol Y. Guess, Esq., Chair, Board of Directors, Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce

Having access to knowledge, skills, and resources are true game-changers for any rising business owner but especially for underrepresented youth. As a parent of a youth entrepreneur and business owner, I've witnessed Target Evolution not only provide access but a safe place for youth to grow, development, and soar!

Target Evolution is the best. I have seen Target Evolution grow from its humble beginnings, to now helping kids all of the country become entrepreneurs and business owners. Crystal has been able to reach students who may have been left behind or worst pushed into the workforce with no job skills and the desire to become business owners. Target Evolution is the best program for youth and Crystal has the desire, experience and expertise to make it the best non-profit in the country and world. Thanks Crystal

Target Evolution and Teen Biz Camp have helped and allowed me to understand the basics of entrepreneurship as a teenager, and also how to step up out of my comfort zone. It also, allowed me to connect with other successful teenpreneurs.
I recommend Teen Biz Camp to all teens who are in need of money for college, financial help, and/or for a simple side hustle.

Great program for teen entrepreneurs! Love the concept and the fact that it gives them an opportunity to showcase and sell their products in the mall.

Target Evolution & Teen Biz Camp has been a blessing for my daughter. When I was 1st diagnosed with cancer my daughter was sad & depressed.
Target Evolution opened the Galleria Mall location & my daughters products 2BooG Beauty was allowed to have a space inside the mall. Working at the got her mind off of me and cancer & allowed her to focus on something positive & make her on money at the same time.

I'm excited about Target Evolution because my personal commitment to entrepreneurship to all people ties me to them. I am the founder of Tech Ranch, Austin, Texas' first privately funded incubator for entrepreneurs. I was introduced to Crystal's work and was excited to become a Target Evolution advisory board member because of the work she is doing. It's been powerful to watch her over the last five years move this work forward and drive the tools of entrepreneurship to the youth of Houston and Dallas. I fully support that she should be recognized and this work should be taken further from there.

Target Evolution's Teenbiz Camp has been instrumental in furthering the growth of my son's men's accessories business by allowing him to gain real-life retail experience in one of the top mall's in the world, Houston Galleria! It's been amazing to see how quickly the organization has taken our youth and their businesses in a very short period of time. The management team thinks daily of ways to help our youth thrive!

I love it! It's an awesome program to help young entrepreneurs become business owners of their own. It teaches them all of the aspects of running a business, marketing strategies, interacting with customers and so much more. I would recommend any young individual that has a goal of becoming a business owner to enroll in the program. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Target Evolution helps teens earn money for college and other activities with a small business or freelance work. We operate in multiple cities throughout Texas and will be expanding nationally very soon! It's been an honor and a privilege to lead this organization and serve the youth and families whom have participated.
