2018 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Bonita Taylor is a business owner and community leader who nurtures entrepreneurship through teaching sustainability skills (i.e. sewing, cooking, jewelry making, gardening, and farming) to children and youth in her community. She holds a B.S. in General Dietetics from Cheyney State University and an M.S. in Health & Nutrition Education from St. Joseph’s University. Bonita is the recipient of a 2017 Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant, where she led workshops for predominantly black children from the Sun Village section of Chester, Pennsylvania, and taught them to use their imagination and self-expression to create jewelry that reflects their culture. Her goal is to preserve the art of sewing by teaching it to as many people in her community as possible, and for them to use these skills to find creative ways to sustain themselves.
