Job Creation is the key to economic prosperity……
A New Area Of Focus By the Rotary Foundation To Eradicate Poverty:
A $40,000 Global Grant enables us to impact -2,000 university students per year-$20 each….
- 11,000 University Students in Nigeria have been taught to write Business Plans by a Team of 4 from SGV.
- Nigerian-American Sarah Philips, Rancho-Cucamonga Rotary, is our point person. Formerly Chief Legislative Officer of Kaduna State. She gets things done!
- You can send a person to participate on this team, then take responsibility elsewhere next year, maybe in a land of heritage. We’ll teach you.

Develop a Strategic or Business Plan

- Select a curriculum –JA, Making a Job
- Plan on 10 class periods
- Meet with school authority or teacher
- Train teachers to teach the curriculum
- Offer Rotary mentors to the teachers
New Generation Youth Are Creating Jobs:
- A survey in Sweden of youth 10 years after a high school JA Company class showed that 23%, or about 1 in 5, had actually formed a business.
- But each new business also hired on average 4 employees -thus 5 jobs were created.
- For every 100 youth that were taught entrepreneurship, 100 jobs resulted!
- Pursue Job Creation in your community’s schools as well as Internationally. American Indian youth also offer great opportunities.
