EYEJ has become well-known in the Cleveland area for its discussion series. The group will soon be launching the Youth Empowerment Program (YEP), which will help youth gain a better understanding of possible career interests. Fortunately, other programs are also in place to support Cleveland students. One such program is CAAO’s Youth Innovation Forum (YIF).

CAAO and EYEJ both focus on connecting youth to a variety of positive community role models and helping youth develop leadership, confidence, and other important qualities. The Youth Innovation Forum aims specifically to build the entrepreneurial skills of attendees by teaching them how to develop and market products, write business plans, and more.

Both the YEP and YIF programs are important to the development of Cleveland’s youth. Introducing them to potential career or business opportunities at a young age can help them recognize their own value. Additionally, increasing entrepreneurship in poorer communities often leads to a decrease in crime.

Thank you to CAAO for the many programs you have in place to build a brighter future for Cleveland!
