Inspiring the Next Generation of Community-Minded Leaders

CEOs of Tomorrow was founded in 2016 with a mission to inspire youth to unlock their entrepreneurial gifts and use them to make the world a better place. Our engaging, hands-on programs and products strengthen critical life skills and give youth the opportunity to affect positive social change while earning money.

What is social entrepreneurship?

Social entrepreneurship, or creating a business to address pressing issues and benefit society, transforms youth into critical thinkers who dream big, make courageous decisions, and inspire good will. Through social entrepreneurship education, our youth not only learn business ownership, but also become leaders and team players, practice problem-solving, grow their confidence, and unlock their creativity.

Developing the entrepreneurial mindset

The benefits of entrepreneurship education extend far beyond business ownership. Our youth develop skills that set them up for success at school, at home, and in their future career.
