Aspiring Teen Entrepreneurs Wanted

Entrepreneurial Fellowship Program Skyrocket the success of an aspiring Young Entrepreneur who has the desire to succeed in entrepreneurship, but lacks the knowledge and resources.

Cultivating Young Entrepreneurs!

The Young Moguls Entrepreneurial Fellowship is a 6 week, hands-on business development program that trains a group of pre-selected high school students on the intricacies of developing a viable, small business idea.

Students are trained once a week for six weeks, ending the program with a final business pitch presentation and completion ceremony.

The fellowship trainings focus on covering 4 educational components, which are:

Financial Literacy
Leadership Development
Community Building

Each training session is composed of in-depth strategies that allow participants to get a thorough understanding of wealth building through entrepreneurship.

Our goal is to provide  youth with technical entrepreneurial skills,  all while empowering them to use their wealth to improve their communities. Our curriculum educates each participant on how to merge entrepreneurship and financial literacy in order to create wealth and a positive impact in our local communities. Upon completion of the program, participants will possess the knowledge and skills to develop a profitable business venture, which will put them on a direct path of building generational wealth. 

This Entrepreneurial Fellowship Program is accessible to ALL students and there is ZERO cost to participate.
