  • 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.
