Young Men & Women’s Business Leadership Academy

Our goal is to positively influence young men and young women in our community to be accountable for their actions, to think proactively and to cooperate with community entities and individuals.

This coincides with a curriculum that is aimed at coaching youth to help them acquire new social skills, emotional regulation skills and cooperative qualities that are relative to business skill sets. These skills will prepare the young men and young women to be servant leaders in their communities and in their future careers/businesses that they will represent.
From business expos and vendor events, to having important conversations, the YMWBLA is geared to help youth find their strengths and succeed at something that they choose in life.
