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.
Join us online or in person at our new Silicon Beach office in Santa Monica for our "Young Entrepreneur Showcase and Supporter Mixer" event. The excitement kicks off Thursday, July 23, 2015, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. You'll hear from "Draper University of Heroes" Superstars, who have raised millions of dollar from some of Silicon Valley's biggest investors. Our guests will also include, celebrities, investors, and educators. And attendees will have a chance to win great prizes like an iWatch, "Beats by Dre" headphones, PR marketing, and much more. The event will be streamed live for those who can't make it out. Stay tuned for a link and more info.
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.
