Bringing a Micro-Economy to Your School or Youth Group!  

Empowerment Group’s Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) training provides a unique experience for youth to take an idea of their own and turn it into an actual business that serves their school community. Our programming is built around the idea that youth shouldn’t just learn the concept of entrepreneurship -they should get the chance to put it into practice.

Our program provides youth with the opportunity to engage in entrepreneurial efforts within their school or community group to create an economically self sustaining community – a “micro-economy.” Youth learn how to capture a market share of their “micro-economy” (i.e. the money that circulates in their school), and they get to determine how to use the profits from their businesses – to fund field trips, buy new supplies, etc.

All of our educational offerings teach youth valuable and transferable life skills and core competencies including:

  • Effective Communication
  • Leadership
  • Public Speaking
  • Decision Making
  • Idea Development
  • Project Management
  • Market Research
  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Financial Management
  • Community Impact
