Scaling Gen Z Skill-building Programming for Young Entrepreneurs

54% of GenZ aspire to be entrepreneurs. But, how does a kid turn an aspiration into a career? It's on us, folks. We, collectively, need to provide entrepreneurial education experiences that build the skills young entrepreneurs need to succeed. Durable skills‚-such as critical thinking, communication and presentation, collaboration, leadership, financial literacy, creativity, and learning to take risks and accepting failure‚-are the secret sauce for future entrepreneurs. But, are we doing our jobs and ensuring that all students have equitable access to skill‚-building programming in middle and high school? It's a revolution in the making and these nonprofits are tackling the challenge to forge a more entrepreneurial America.
