Can't spend a dime?
Then, spend some time... helping us help those in need.
Post it, tweet it, share it. The more people you tell, the more help we can receive.
Creating opportunities for youth requires many hands. We've got many successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in.
Volunteer with us directly to provide needy families with the support they need to improve the economic status of their family. Contact us to learn more about opportunities and ideas for donating, fundraising, hosting events, campaigning, buying gifts, and involving your school or company.
Youth receive structured learning in literacy through Young Entrepreneurs Conferences (YEC) and Symposiums. SPEEED also provides academic support for youth on the entrepreneurial track through programs such as the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA) and Fresh Start EOG readiness.
Empty stomachs hurt. They break concentration and make a better future seem impossible. Our youth plant, nurture and harvest two Community and Neighborhood Gardens mentored by Volunteers. Families gain access to fresh vegetables through this program coupled with the Summer Foods Program which provided snack and supper daily during the summer months. Youth also enjoy workshops, trips and incentives.
When School is Out, SPEEED is IN!
Youth gain employability skills, experience and knowledge to compete in the job market. They have an opportunity to serve in various capacities learning what they like and dislike about different jobs to open their minds to the world of possibilities toward owning their own business.
Mission: To pick up the pace in mobilizing and motivating youth ages 8-21 to become entrepreneurs through Enrichment, Education and Employment opportunities. By special populations we mean individuals ages 8-21 who are underserved, disadvantaged, disabled, adjudicated or displaced in any area of life.
Vision: To equip, cultivate, inspire and empower youth to become successful leaders and entrepreneurs in all facets of the workforce.
