YouthBiz Sponsorship Opportunities

Recent studies  demonstrate that entrepreneurship education helps students develop skills that will help them in school and in life.  YouthBiz engages youth who live in poverty and who attend under-resourced schools, developing their mindsets and skills in new ways and through opportunities otherwise inaccessible in their schools or afterschool programs.

Support YouthBiz and enable youth to learn, think, speak, and act like an entrepreneur.  For more information about any of the programs listed below, contact Betsy Sklar, Vice President Business Partnerships and Development at 303-320-3245 or bsklar@yacenter.org.

Mary Spillane, Director of Community Impact for Comcast’s Mountain West Region

“Comcast believes success starts with opportunity. We value investing in programs like YouthBiz that help young entrepreneurs gain the skills needed to compete in the 21st-century economy and propel their success in life.”
