|Let's Talk: Community Building
GenEI builds on your community's existing assets to explore current youth entrepreneurship education programs. A proven effective appraisal, survey and community leader meeting will set the stage for starting youth entrepreneurship programs with community support.
Action: A Community Plan and Educator/ Community Organization Certification
GenEI will work with your community to develop a plan for a community based entrepreneurship program. Community leaders, mentors and coaches are essential for sustainability. We will provide certification training in any of our three curricula. Your community identifies appropriate educators and community organizations, along with after school, faith based programs and home school organizations to be certified and receive GenEI curricula. We customize the program to fit the needs of each organization, and facilitators are introduced to the tools that are available for long term program support. A plan to host a Showcase will be developed.
Sustain: Continued Support
During the instruction and after, we provide assistance to educators and community based organizations in the following areas to make sure the programs are sustained: Student Business Showcases, Revolving loan funds, Mentors, Internships and Curricula customization.
