IXGEN Youth Empowerment Program (iYEP) 2014 Theme: Maximize Your Potential
National Small Business Week
March 12 - 18, 2014
IXGEN celebrated the week-long, cross-country series of events by holding a Networking Luncheon for female Small Business owners in the metro Atlanta area, to discuss useful resources to help the women brand, market, and grow their businesses. Key resource agencies represented were the SBA (Women in Small Business Program), and ACE (Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs).
Over a light lunch the women shared their experiences, learned from each other, and developed new business relationships.
Participants at iYEP 2014
14 youth aged between 13 and 17 graduated from the 3rd IXGEN Youth Empowerment Program (iYEP) on Saturday August 2, 2014, at the Peace Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, on Columbia Drive in Decatur.
The graduation ceremony culminated the 30-hour Summer Training Program which provided participants with an all-round introduction to creating and managing their own business, and learning basic business principles. The training also helped participants to identify their strengths, and talents and make the best use of them. The curriculum included technology, innovation and creativity, financial literacy, e-commerce, business plan development, branding and marketing, business ethics, and spiritual enrichment.
The theme ‘Maximize Your Potential’ raised the awareness of the participants as to how they can be empowered by making the most of their gifts and talents, and with reinforced life skills, gain the confidence to unlock their true potential and become successful citizens and business leaders.
To address the graduating class, was keynote speaker Sonja N. Brown Esq, a Deputy Chief Assistant Solicitor-General with the DeKalb County Solicitor General’s office (DKSG). Her message was on achieving ‘Greatness’. She expounded on how choices can either lead them to, or take them away from their ‘Greatness’. She encouraged the youth to be confident, committed, and make the right choices that will lead them to opportunities that will make them great.
Other speakers were Robert W. Johnson, CEO, Club-E Atlanta, Tierra Destiny Reid, Executive Director of The Retail Campus, and POP the Evangelistic Poet, who gave a performance of his poetry. The master of ceremonies was Dr. Raymon E. Crawford, Director of the International Education Program for the 100 Black Men of DeKalb County.
The highlight of the day’s event was a mini business expo which was an exhibition of businesses run by youth entrepreneurs that have participated in and, have startup businesses as a direct outcome of the iYEP training. According to Program Director Emmenette Mason, “this is a new aspect of the program, and we hope to take it further by encouraging this nucleus of young entrepreneurs to form an entrepreneurship club where they will continue to receive further training, experience more exposure to the business world, share their experiences, learn from mentors and from each other”.
