Community: Entrepreneurship mentoring

Future 50 class of 2022:See who made the list

Idea: Create a cooperative of volunteers, education facilities and local businesses that progresses the lives of disadvantaged adults with a focus on entrepreneurship, careers, financial literacy and technological acumen. Bootcamps could be run by qualified volunteers. From there, the cooperative matches participants with mentors (possibly current and past Future 50 class members), and the group could enlist businesses to provide experience to participants in the form of internships and job shadowing. The highest-performing participants would be encouraged to become volunteers in educating new participants.
