  • Deliver consistent bilingual experiential programming aimed at introducing the concept of entrepreneurship as a viable career option to youth (5 to 29).

  • Bridge the gap between thinking about starting a business and actually starting one.

  • Connect young people at an early age to their communities and encourage them to seek innovative solutions to the problems they see.

  • Stem the effects of youth out migration.
