YOUTHpreneur Summit

April 24 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

FREE

Calling all teens, young adults and entrepreneurs (13 – 18). Come experience a day filled with Mentoring, Networking and Learning!

Building a Business or a Brand at any age takes great courage and confidence Yet in communities of color life circumstances and other institutional barriers can hinder our Teens ability to dream big and discover their full potential!

Students aren’t as easily exposed to opportunities to learn transferable skills about marketing, entrepreneurship, financial literacy as well as build the self confidence to publicly speak in comparison to their counterpart communities! – We empower our teens to understand that they are their own brand

Our Summit brings a panel of entrepreneurs to share their experiences with our youth and then gives them the opportunity to pitch their ideas or business (with an emphasis on empowering their community) for a chance to win cash prizes, branding support and be connected to mentors

The Community can register for the event via www.YouthSummit21.eventbrite.com

Panelists Include:

Racquel Mills – Celebrity Designer, Founder and CEO, Viva La Coco

Musie Haile – Entrepreneur, Owner of Management Company & cofounder of FOY

Carlotta Mohamed – Reporter, Queens Courier

Dr. Edly Destine D.D.S – Business Owner, 88 Smile
