Today, a large disconnect exists between youth and income generating opportunities. Over 50% of youth are unemployed or underemployed, and over 90% of youth related crimes stem from youth trying to make money and fit in (with the wrong crowd).
A large scale, centralized system is needed to teach youth entrepreneurship – while providing real life experience enabling youth to informatively consider this career option, and helping parents keep kids in school and away from drugs, delinquency, and gangs
Create a social platform to teach youth life and business skills through interactive lessons, motivational videos, and virtual mentors. With your help, we will build the most powerful youth empowerment tool on the planet, and save countless young lives.
The lack of jobs, income earning opportunities, and consequences these realities create for youth inspired us to seek out a solution to the challenges faced by young people everyday.
After putting our heads together, and recruiting a team of volunteers, mentors and professionals, what we created is a blueprint for a platform committed to transforming young lives through entrepreneurship.
We have been successful at attracting enough financial support to get us off the ground, however, in early April we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise the additional capital necessary for the completion of the platform.
Our team of volunteers, mentors, and professionals has already begun taking steps towards building out the YouthBloc platform that will educate and empower America’s future. Our goal is to have the site complete by December 2015.
