Rising Leaders’ Young Entrepreneurship Program

Rising Leaders’ Youth Entrepreneurship/Career Path Program (YEP) is a program developed for youth/young adults ages 6 to 21, both male and female. YEP will introduce them to different career paths at an early age, which will equip them with the necessary skill sets to be successful in a particular field of interest. In today’s society it’s not sufficient enough to just encourage our youth/young adults to get a job.

Rising Readers Program:

A reading initiative that we have implemented into barbershops and hair salons. Every time a child comes into a salon or shop to get their hair done, they will either read aloud for a few minutes or read a few pages in exchange for a discount on their services. Each participant will have a log to complete, which will allow us to track the participant’s progress.
