Young Entrepreneurs of the Future, Inc. (YEF), a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit, mentoring, advocacy, and coaching organization for youth, started November, 1991, by Carolyn Stowers, with the assistances of four youth, 14-16 years old.
The Young Entrepreneurs radio show will share how we address the issues that teenagers face. How we expand youth’s ways of thinking, through hands-on-job training, soft skills development, leadership skills, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship, using Best Practices for mentoring. Listeners will hear from collaborators from schools, businesses, youth serving agencies, post-secondary institutions, and research based information, on the importance of mentoring, coaching, and entrepreneurship for each school grade level. YEF is operated with volunteers on a break-even basis. We welcome listeners’ feedback via email at YEF6027@msn.com.
Carolyn developed her work ethics growing up on a farm, and her faith in God, through her parents, ministers. Personal sacrifices, and donations helped to keep YEF in existences for twenty-five years. Credentials includes – Mentoring Best Practices – United Way of Southern Penna; Non-Profit Administrator Certification – University of Pennsylvania; The National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship; and Master Certificate in Strategic Human Resource Management – Michigan State University.
