In an era where poor money management is the norm, this program teaches youth basic financial management skills through entrepreneurship. Youth learn the principals of money and capitalism from professionals in the field and participate in a mock business start up that culminates in them preparing a product review, marketing campaign, and the opportunity to sell their products to an International Street Festival on the first Saturday in August. One of the most important goals in preparing youth for entrepreneurialism is to inspire them to desire to own businesses and give back to their communities thereby making them stronger and more service- oriented … creating jobs and sustainable economic growth. Youth are encouraged to pursue higher education as a catalyst for fiscal growth development.
