Rise To Youth Entrepreneurship
This initiative funded by the NJ Office of Faith Based Initiatives will teach the local youth about the skills required to build a strong business, transform lives, strengthen families, and build a sustainable community.
The students will learn habits that they will need to succeed academically, in business, and on a personal level. Entrepreneurship education encourages lifelong learning and increases the likelihood that young workers will view obstacles as opportunities and it will provide them with the ability to adapt when facing challenges.
Young people who are able to obtain stable employment are not as dependent on public assistance and are less likely to participate in at-risk behavior or delinquency.
