Summary

Supporting low income public schools located in the two country states which concentrate younger population, Jovenes Emprendedores/Junior Achievement Venezuela plans to provide free financial and entrepreneurial education to 1000 youngsters attending these schools. These programs help them to gain self-esteem by identifying and strengthening their own abilities, thus lowering school drop-outs and decreasing rates of adolescent pregnancies that are affecting many youngsters before 25 years

Challenge

As per the last survey conducted by a renowned university, 2,789,000 youngsters between 15 and 25 years are not included neither in the economic nor in the education systems.They are not prepared for inclusion, they are poverty multipliers.Lack of interest for formal studies are due to many factors: education contents have been politicized, economic conditions are worst than ever and adolescents are getting pregnant too early. Improved contents to provide tools for economic inclusion are needed

Solution

Our organization provides education contents designed to motivate youngsters to improve their self esteem and understand their high school studies as a requirement for their own development, while we add practical contents enriched with economics, finance and entrepreneurship concepts. These programs provide them with preparation to work and entrepreneurship to initiate their own small business and become productive individuals for the society, with less violence, delinquency, young pregnancies

Long-Term Impact

Providing financial and entrepreneurship education to these youngsters will change communities through business and jobs creation. Livelihood of at least 3000 people from their communities (88%) will improve.Those who do not initiate a business will continue their studies thus achieving better life conditions for them and their families.Identifying and strengthening their self esteem, skills and abilities, they will gain a sense of accomplishment for making smart decisions to overcome poverty.
