Today I was catching up with a dear friend, Bernie Sucher, who lives in Russia. He shared with me an amazing program modeled after Teach for America. It is called Venture for America. It was founded by Andrew Yang who is the current president of the organization. Take a look and see if your organization or one you may know could be a partner for this exciting organization that wants to give opportunities to future entrepreneurs.
- To revitalize American cities and communities through entrepreneurship.
- To enable our best and brightest to create new opportunities for themselves and others.
- To restore the culture of achievement to include value creation, risk and reward, and the common good.
The vision is that a substantial proportion of the VFA Fellows will become successful entrepreneurs, preferably rooted in the communities to which they’re assigned. Venture for America’s purpose is job generation – our goal is to generate 100,000 U.S. jobs by 2025.
