Future Entrepreneurs Foundation has designed the Youth Innovators Program. The program aims to make support available to youth via an online mentorship and tutoring platform. We aim to provide youth with online tutoring and mentorship. We are seeking volunteers to connect with youth on an ongoing basis and empower teens to stay in school, plan for future careers, and achieve in life. The Young Innovators Program is designed to connect youth who have challenges academically. Youth can overcome these challenges through continuous tutoring.

The Young Innovators Progam comprises business professionals, social works, and educators. The online program will assist with the immediate need to reconnect with students and replace the face to face interaction which ended as a result of the COVID-19 health pandemic. The online program will comprise of the following subjects; entrepreneurship, life skills, and mental health. Volunteers in our program will provide mentorship who have a professional career background in entrepreneurship, social work, and education.

Volunteers in the Young Innovators Program work together to ensure youth are receiving support for each person. As a volunteer mentor, you would be asked to check-in repeatedly with your mentee via scheduling a Zoom meeting and create a continuous mentorship bond with them! This is a nationwide opportunity and does not require you to be in the same location as your mentee. Having someone to speak with can make a huge difference in a child's life. Before assigning a mentee to you, Future Entrepreneurs will go over some basic guidelines and learn about you and confirm your level of commitment to our youth.
