Shaping the Next Generation of Youth Leaders

Adults often say “youth are our future”, and it’s crucial to instill the entrepreneurial mindset in them early. These youth are thinkers, problem-solvers, and innovators - in fact, 8 out of 10 kids want to be their own boss. Drawing from personal experience, panelists will inspire educators to foster social entrepreneurship and community-mindedness in their classrooms. The four panelists were named as 2019 Global Teen Leaders, recognized as the top 30 most influential social entrepreneurs.
