"We have a powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends"
-Mary McLeod Bethune
VIBE Academy would explore partnerships with youthpreneurs who are already in business, offer a day in the life career experience with designated professionals, and VIBE Academy youth would participate in community projects to foster accountability to their community. VIBE Academy aims to create an informal support to youth within their communities, that can either enhance their current educational experience or provide a short term framework for older youth who are exploring their next steps.
VIBE Academy is a mentor and entrepreneurial program birthed out of
VIBE BK, serving youth ranging from ages 10 to 17. A hub for young minorities to learn other means of advancement outside of the traditional classroom. Our potential clients are youth who may not be able to finish high school/ not college bound, have an interest in entrepreneurship, and youth on the path of exploring career options. While VIBE BK is a supporter of schooling, we understand that formal education is not the only form of learning.
