ENTREPRENEURSHIP & LIFE SKILLS TRAINING
About the Youth Empowerment Program (iYEP)
iYEP is an annual summer entrepreneurship and life skills training for middle and high school youth, and young adults aged 13-29, to help them become economically, socially, and spiritually motivated, and empowered.
To teach and expose entrepreneurship to young people from less-served communities and families, so they can unlock their true potential, become economically productive, and live enriched lives through innovation and business ownership.
To actively engage youths in their personal and economic development, and empower them to become conscious of who they are, and their roles in their homes and communities.
A secondary goal of the program is to work with businesses, local government, the school system, churches, other youth development organizations, and community leaders to train, mentor, and guide the youth into becoming successful entrepreneurs, and effective community leaders and decision makers.
Eighteen thousand high school students, advisers, businesspersons and alumni gathered to develop knowledge and skills for college and careers.
Emmenette Mason, Founder & CEO of IXGEN, was one of the Event Judges .
