Advancing Social & Economic Prosperity for Youths Under 21
Although the basis for financial literacy and money management begins in the home, there's an increasing need to empower our young people to launch their own entrepreneurial projects to advance social & economic prosperity worldwide. For this reason, Wings of Love, Inc. helps less privileged youth to discover and develop their life-long entrepreneurial potential and their personal leadership fully capable of manifesting success in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them and our society.
Wings of Love, Inc. brings youth entrepreneurship to life through an intensive business ownership experience. The participants in our program work to identify an entrepreneurial opportunity, prepare a business for launch, then run a profitable enterprise.
Along the journey, our young entrepreneurs develop an independent business with an earning potential and increased connection to the community.
Wings of love, Inc. is investing in a new generation of business owners, job creators and community leaders through a Young Entrepreneurs Under 21 program which supports kids between 16 and 21 years old to develop their entrepreneurial skills and raise capital for their first business, in order to advance the global social and economic prosperity through the practice of youth-centered entrepreneurship education.
Wings of Love, Inc. believe in entrepreneurship as the key to generate innovative solutions to the challenge of creating economic and social prosperity. Enterprises create a positive life-long impact for youths, and for their environment, beyond a increased income for them and their families. Young entrepreneurs develop positive risk taking skills, and increased connection to the community.
Wings of Love, Inc. knows that entrepreneurship is best learned by doing it. Thus, our development model allows youth to experience entrepreneurship first-hand, and process their experience into a strong link with their communities as well as with other entrepreneurial leaders to move to their next potential level, to serve the greater good, with social responsibility for a sustainable world.
The Wings of Love, Inc.'s goal is to support and promote innovative entrepreneurs and business leaders who contribute to the well-being of their employees, customers, investors, communities and the environment.
The 2010 National Endowment for Financial Education National Survey revealed 86% of students say they would rather learn about money management in class before making mistakes in the real world; meanwhile the 2011 Charles Schwab Teens and Money Survey research showed "89% of teachers agree or strongly agree that students should take a financial literacy course or pass a test for high school graduation."
Sadly, up to date there are more than 6 million young Americans out of work and not in school, according to official data, and most of them are not able to develop assertive options to get back to school or quickly overcome unemployment.
That's because Wings of Love, Inc. is moving forward, beyond the business plan, incorporating a real-world, dollar generating experience for all of our youth, year-round.
