Young Entrepreneurs Book Club (YEBC) was established in 22nd June, 2020 in the United Kingdom; primarily focused on capacity building for children aged 1 to 18 years. We are committed to developing and empowering young minds to become Entrepreneurial and consequently, Future Business Leaders.
We recognize that for our kids to be at the top bracket of the economy and be able to compete in the fast changing economic environment, the best way is through entrepreneurship which is not being a major focus in the many Education curriculum taught in schools Worldwide.
Also with the ongoing black lives matter movement, we need to equip our Black children with skills that will make them economically, financially independent and relevant amongst the black economy
Like a lot of parents, the CEo have recognized the need to constantly educate her kids by home schooling them on Entrepreneurship. She realized how expensive it can be for a household to efficiently achieve this goal hence the idea to start a book club.
At Young Entrepreneur Book Club, we share ideas and lessons learnt from different books that can help develop our children’s entrepreneurial skills. We also do book exchange a way to help achieve our goals without breaking the bank.
The ultimate goal is to prepare kids to be the next generation of Business Leaders. To achieve the aforementioned, we are collaborating with Parents, Schools, Companies, NGOs, Governments, and Individuals to empower the younger generation. This means that when children that have interfaced with us find themselves in situations where they are unemployed, they wouldn’t succumb to self-pity rather, they are able to use the skills learned to create new opportunities for themselves, start their own businesses, generate work and subsequently become employers of labor.
To achieve the aforementioned we have established various platforms to enhancing learning of kids .
