Youth Entrepreneurship

Youth entrepreneurship opportunities are necessary to keep communities growing, especially in times of high unemployment and economic difficulties. Surveys show most middle and senior high students would prefer to stay in or return to their hometowns and many desire to start their own business. We need new approaches to give youth the opportunity to chart their own destinies within their own communities.

Entrepreneurship education is an effective community strategy to reduce school dropout and youth substance abuse. Even if they don’t start a business, youth involved in entrepreneurship programs gain skills and become more innovative and effective employees.MSU Extension provides cutting-edge curriculum and training to volunteers and teachers to deliver programs where youth can develop, practice and master the skills that will assist them in charting their own destiny.
