BENEFITING: IXOYE GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP NETWORK
IXOYE Global Entrepreneurship Network (IXGEN) is a Georgia nonprofit organization created to provide business support services to assist in creating, strengthening and expanding grassroots micro and small enterprises, and guide them toward national and international levels of entrepreneurship. IXGEN's mission is to facilitate access to resources, provide information, technical assistance, training, counseling and other support services, to micro and small entrepreneurs to enable them to promote, strengthen and grow their businesses. We promote micro-entrepreneurship as a means to wealth building and financial freedom, and improving the lives of individuals and families that are facing financial challenges, living in under-served or low-income communities. We are non-discriminatory, and we offer assistance and training to all demographics. We host various events throughout the year, and focus mainly on women and youth. Our signature programs are for the youth, and we have created two annual youth empowerment projects: 1. THE YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM (iYEP) This is our annual Entrepreneurship, Leadership, & Life Skills Training that is offered to teens and youth in metro Atlanta, and provides opportunities for the young people to develop the competencies they need to become successful individuals, and potential business owners. The 6-session (30 hours) training during the summer, gives participants an all-round introduction to basic business principles for creating and managing a small business, and enhancing their leadership, spiritual, life skills and community involvement. The iYEP Project teaches and exposes entrepreneurship to young people from various communities to unlock their true potential, become economically productive, and empowers them to become conscious of who they are, and their roles in their homes and communities through business ownership. Our long-term view is to have the program throughout the US and Africa for middle and high school students, as well as young adults. 2. GLOBAL YOUTH ENTREPRENEURS BUSINESS EXPO (GYEBE) Every year, during Fall, we participate in a global celebration of entrepreneurship during Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), and as partners for several years now, we have recognized that we have a responsibility in shaping the next generation of entrepreneurs. We have therefore created the Global Youth Entrepreneurs Business Expo (GYEBE). This is a great initiative where for one day, we encourage kids, teens, and young adult entrepreneurs, to promote and expose their creativity and innovation. we are now raising funds for this year's expo. This is great...you've been invited to help raise money for all our programs, and especially, hiring at least one staff in 2017, to help with administration. IXGEN Youth Empowerment Program (iYEP) 2017, and Global Youth Entrepreneurs Business Expo (GYEBE) 2016 and 2017 need your support.
