The YETP will introduce the basics of entrepreneurship, business plans, bookkeeping, advertising, and interest-bearing accounts, in connection with the regular course curriculum in reading and math. The YETP will select a population of 60 at-risk youth ranging from ages 7-18 that is inclusive of selected levels of student matriculation. The YETP, with its collaborative of key stakeholders, will address the need for prevention and intervention services to youth in the West Jackson feeder pattern with regard to delinquency, truancy and school failure.
