Growing Diverse Businesses To Empower The Economically Underserved

Login

Young Entrepreneurs Academy

The Council for Supplier Diversity’s mission is to increase economic opportunity in under-served communities. We accomplish by identifying, certifying and developing diverse businesses’ capacity to supply and service major corporations.

As part of serving our mission, we have created the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. Very often I have found that young people from under-served communities have little exposure to the vast opportunities business ownership provides for personal and economic success. This leads them to lack hope and settle, rather than exploit their full potential. The Academy is designed to teach young men and women from under-served communities how to identify, plan and start their own businesses. We teach them key fundamental structures, business plan development, industry knowledge and systems models that will give them a jump start.


Our Academy students learn from successful diverse business owners, first hand what skills and characteristics are needed to succeed. Finally all participants are required to start a micro-business to gain real experience in developing a business plan, raising capital and managing a business.

In collaboration with Access Inc. and the YouthBuild Project, the Council provides training and internships in the area of business development to at-risk youth participating in the program.

Empowerment
The services offered by this project are designed to empower youth with the skills, education, and training needed to achieve self- sufficiency and success in future work endeavors.

Mentoring and Leadership Development
The project includes wraparound services designed to provide leadership opportunities, and includes a one-to-one adult mentoring component to increase support for participating youth.

Education
Youth will learn practical skills to stimulate their interest in becoming successful business owners.

Internship Opportunities 
They will learn the value of hard work as a means to success in life through participation in the training program and in the internships they will have at successful DBE companies.
