ADVANCING SOCIAL & ECONOMIC PROSPERITY
We equip young people to become dynamic entrepreneurs, leaders in change, advocates for the transformation of their schools and visionary community members. We believe it will be our young people who will build a positive future for themselves and vibrant community.
Youth come to YouthBiz from Denver neighborhoods struggling with unemployment, high rates of poverty, low graduation rates, and high rates of gang violence.
While the challenges our youth face are great, at YouthBiz are exceptional and resilient. We work to expand the prospects for education, employment and entrepreneurship. Among our youth, we see GPAs go up, risky behavior go down, and entrepreneurial plans for the future made. As youth connect with entrepreneurial leadership opportunities, they develop the skills and courage to rewrite the narrative for their lives, their schools, and their community.
