When kids learn the principles of entrepreneurship, it can heal families and communities. Veleke Brown is the CEO and founder of E-Roadmap, a nonprofit organization that teaches youth the mindset and skills associated with entrepreneurship. Today’s youth are missing out on the opportunity to develop the crucial skills that come with entrepreneurship, as it is not taught in many schools.
We must educate kids on financial literacy and problem-solving so they can develop solution-oriented thinking and tackle the problems that exist in their communities. With a positive mindset and hands-on training for critical life skills, these kids can grow up knowing they have what it takes to make a difference and succeed. Help support and educate the youth and create a generation of positive change!
