Youth Entrepreneurship Empowerment Symposium

The Youth Entrepreneurship Empowerment Camp offers students in grades 9th – 12th the opportunity to acquire foundations of business concepts, and then apply those concepts to the team’s new business idea. This startup movement will help students test their creativity and critical thinking skills.

The curriculum is 50% Entrepreneurship, 20% Financial Literacy, 20% Strategic Planning and 10% Customer Service and People Skills. Our curriculum brings business principles to life through experiential learning, executed in real, market-based scenarios. We strive to instill the moral character necessary for our youth to lead lives as innovative, productive, thriving leaders in our communities.
