How It Works
The HOPE Business In A Box Academies Initiative (HBIABA) will channel and transform a youth’s natural aspiration and state of hope into practical and life changing action steps. Action steps that they can implement themselves, with a little help from HOPE.
HOPE Business In A Box Academies - It starts with an idea
Youth complete the six-hour HBIABA primer course on entrepreneurship. Students will learn the process of turning a personal interest, dream and skill into a viable business idea and the art of pitching that idea. This course will be taught by local professionals and business owners and help kids develop skills in public speaking, critical thinking, and project management among others.
The youth who complete the HBIABA Initiative will be introduced to key business and financial concepts which will provide them with the tools required to successfully compete in the global economy. This will be done by reconnecting the power of aspiration with the power of education in the lives of today’s America youth.
