Magnificent Creations is a social enterprise of Unleashing Potential (formerly Neighborhood Houses) that empowers teens by providing employment experience, education assistance, character development and professional development.


Unleashing Potential (UP), an agency that has focused on youth development for more than 100 years, believes all children can reach their magnificent potential. As a social enterprise of UP, Magnificent Creations works to provide an educational and empowering experience to help close the opportunity gap for youth from under-resourced communities in St. Louis.

Magnificent Creations was created in 2015 from seed money as the winner of the Youth Bridge Social Enterprise and Innovation Competition through Washington University’s Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The rigorous competition, which was judged by local business and non-profit leaders, provided the start-up funding. The Daughters of Charity Foundation selected Magnificent Creations as the winner of its award in this competition and those funds provided the start-up funding.

Magnificent Creations is a complete t-shirt screen printing business that produces shirts for many type of organizations, corporations, and events.  In addition, our limited-edition designs reflect the creative vision of many of the youth in Unleashing Potential programs. Magnificent Creations currently partners with the SEIA at Washington University in St. Louis as well as STL Youth Jobs to ensure that our work has the greatest impact on the youth in St. Louis.
