Amy is an expert on the global challenges facing youth and employment. She is passionate about the need to provide all young people with the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a successful future.

Our award-winning, innovative and experiential program teaches young people critical skills such as reading, writing and math while they learn the steps to write and defend a business plan based on their own original idea.
Entrepreneurship education is the fundamental tool for creating an ongoing cycle of learning and innovation that will bring sustainable job creation and re-creation. Young people face historic increases in joblessness, an unemployment rate that is three times higher than that of adults, and a rapidly shifting economy.
