Vision & Mission
Making a Better World through Entrepreneurship

In 1999, Youngpreneur was established through a collaboration of parents, educators, and entrepreneurs to make a positive difference in the way kids think about their future. Youngpreneur developed a youth-friendly experiential approach to learning business through interactive team projects, role playing, online learning, and instructor led discussions. Through this collaboration, an innovative business education program was created for students in grades K-12.

Originally Youngpreneur was only offered privately through home-based programs. The demand for our program increased dramatically over the next 8-years. On December 1st, 2007 the Youngpreneur Board of Directors voted to expand programs and offer services within the school curricular, extra-curricular, and enrichment programming.

Since, offering our program within public and private schools, Youngpreneur has garnered numerous regional and national awards. Our unique student-centered experiential learning model is consistently recognized as one of the most innovative teaching methodologies in the United States. It is designed to empower students to identify and utilize their personal talents and skills, while fostering intrinsic motivation to identify problems, solutions, and opportunities.

All program students discover the joys of entrepreneurship, the imagination and thrill involved in creating a product or service, and excitement of having their peers show interest in their work. Not all our students become entrepreneurs, but all students in our program develop important critical-thinking and decision-making skills that will be utilized in whatever endeavor they pursue in life. Come see why at Youngpreneur, we are “Making the World a Better Place”.
