A 5-20% movement in every city across America
The Mission: 5-20%, in every city across America NO MATTER WHAT!
In order for America to win in the future, we need to be a global economic leader, and a key component in being an economic leader is a thriving start-up community. According to the Small Business Administration from mid-2009 to 2011 67% of all jobs came from small businesses with 500 employees or less, and half of all jobs came from businesses with 100 employees or less. Gallup and Operation HOPE believe that the 30 million youth between the 4th and 12th grade, represent the bench strength of the playoff game for the rest of our lives.
America 2020s mission is to increase the number of business role models who mentor students in the 4th through 12th grades from 5% nationwide to 20% nationwide by the year 2020.
America 2020 is a national campaign designed to execute the mission of Project 5117, is to strengthen the economy by focusing on empowering those who earn less than $50,000 a year.
Any company, municipality, financial institution, school district, man, woman, youth, adult, of all races and ages, can join America 2020 as long as they are passionate and committed with HOPE to make the change.
First step as an America 2020 member is to identify what role you can fulfill in Project of 5117.

The Business Case with Global Implications
In the next 28 years (by 2040) there will be $140 trillion in untapped global GDP and these kids – 30 million youth ages 8-18 years old – represent the best chance for America to remain on top.
In 2040, who will lead the free world? Which country will have the biggest military budget to secure both protection and global democratic stability? Who can afford international aid or charitable efforts to other nations and people in need? Which nation gets to determine global priorities?
We need to bridge the gap for the 77% of kids who want to be their own boss but only 5% of all kids have a business internship or business role model. Unless we make this change it is doubtful that it will be the United States of America.
