Mission Statement

Youth Business USA's mission is to help underserved young adult entrepreneurs build their businesses.


A 501(c)3 not-for-profit, Youth Business USA (YBUSA) is a business accelerator that helps underserved young adult entrepreneurs build their businesses.

Over 11 million low-income young adults across the country say they want to start a business, but lack the support and resources they need to do so. YBUSA's mission is to prepare, launch and grow highly motivated young entrepreneurs who face barriers to business ownership. We do this through our "Pathway to Business Ownership" training, interest-free loans up to $10,000, and a network of experienced, volunteer business mentors and subject-matter experts.

We know that talent is distributed equally - but opportunity isn't. Our support levels the playing field for entrepreneurs ages 18 to 29, helping them create local businesses, jobs and new sources of income for themselves and their families while learning highly relevant business skills.

Our vision is that these young adult-led enterprises become a national model for job creation, equitable development and economic empowerment.

Specialties: Entrepreneurship Education, Small Business Financing, Business Mentoring, Pre-Launch Coaching

YBUSA is an amazing organization with a true passion for improving entrepreneurial opportunities for underserved entrepreneurs. It's incredibly rewarding as an entrepreneur to volunteer with them and take the experience and advice I've been fortunate to receive over the years and pay it forward to the entrepreneurs creating value in our local areas. The team at YBUSA works tirelessly to improve the programming, tools, and resources available to the community, and it only takes one experience with them to understand the real impact they are providing for these individuals.

I recently retired but wanted to continue utilize my business, management and creative skills to help local youth who were starting their businesses. YBUSA is a really approachable and flexible way to volunteer as a mentor. They look at your background and try to match you up with an appropriate entrepreneur. It doesn't take a lot of time and you can work with different people depending on your skills. You can also refer your entrepreneur to other volunteers who may have other skills within YBUSA. If you want to be a resource to those who are creating our future, I think this place is a great fit for you.
