About Enterprise for Youth

Enterprise for Youth empowers young people to prepare for and discover career opportunities. Youth cultivate their individual interests and potential through training, guidance, and employment experiences in supportive and diverse environments.

“For low income youth, early access to economic opportunity is critical- 43% of Americans raised at the bottom of the income ladder remain stuck there as adults… By 2025 sixty-five percent of the jobs in the United States will require some postsecondary education, training or credential- up from 28% in the 1970s. These heightened expectations mean that it’s more essential than ever for young people to gain work experience and skills today to enable them to compete in the global workforce in the future.”
