Swan Graphics is a vocational screen printing business on the Yakama Reservation
Due to a lack of economic opportunity for high school students and graduates on the Yakama Reservation, Swan Graphics began as a non-profit economic development enterprise, training youth in life, job and vocational skills.
In addition to providing business and vocational experience, Swan Graphics focuses on building positive character traits. Recent economic research shows that character skills predict a wide range of life outcomes. Programs that show the most promise in alleviating these challenges have integrated work skills with character and ethics components.
By ordering products from Swan Graphics, you are directly providing economic opportunities for individuals in White Swan. All proceeds from sales support the mission of Swan Graphics and provide an hourly wage for employees.
As Swan Graphics continues to grow through high demand, additional employees will contribute to the Swan Graphics family. In a community of many broken relationships, the lasting relationships in the workplace of Swan Graphics bring love, joy, encouragement, and hope.
Swan Graphics provides economic opportunity and a stable community. More importantly, Swan Graphics shares the hope of Jesus Christ. Through daily devotionals, conversations, and living life together, the gospel message is spread at Swan Graphics. By the grace of God, the prayers of supporters, and the work of the Spirit, the hope of Christ is made clear and the power of God is working.
