Teens learn foundational business concepts, earn college credits, and make international friends in this youth entrepreneurship program. Prior to leaving, teens engage in summer coursework to learn about the host country, including its geography, customs, languages, education system, and historical slave trade. The program includes a 10-14 day trip to immerse them in opportunities out of the country where they work with international teens by applying what they have learned in social entrepreneurship. Through these collaborative lessons, the teens collectively develop small business ideas aimed at addressing a local need and bringing revenue to the youth, families, and villages.
