Youth Entrepreneur Program
We the “South Florida Miami SCLC” take the current state of our youth very seriously. It’s apparent that new methods are needed in order to reach and stabilize our young Kings and Queens, therefore we are prepared to teach our youth how to become “Founders and Entrepreneurs” that leverage local businesses to propel their own, instead of grooming the youth to be good employees.
Values are the very principles that guide our behavior, and we believe the following will help guide the youth to succeed in both business and in life. You will begin to see the presence, or lack of, the eight Foundational Values in student behaviors on a daily basis.
(1.) Take responsibility for your own life. No one will ever be as concerned about your success as you.
No one else is standing in your shoes to experience the ups and downs of your life. By taking responsibility, you
are looking out for your future and not
allowing others to decide how it goes.
Always act with integrity, respect, and tolerance.
By being principled, we demonstrate
to others a desire to create value for
them, whether monetary or otherwise.
Seek and use the best
knowledge, drive change
that benefits others and
exemplify humility and
If you do not ensure that you are using
accurate and complete information,
you could take action that is not helpful
to yourself and/or others.
Respect the rights of others and study the links between freedom,
entrepreneurship and societal well-being.
Freedom of choice is a critical
component in a free market, which
leads to the greatest opportunity
for each individual to improve their
lives. A lack of freedom diminishes
our ability to create value for others.
Find fulfillment in your life by improving the lives of others.
Creating value for others by using and
sharing your talents is one of the best
ways to find joy in your life. If we keep
our passions to ourselves, we may be
missing out on ways to help others.
You make your own opportunities.
You can sit and wait for things to
happen to you or you can work
to make things happen for you.
Being opportunity obsessed
means being constantly on the
lookout for ways to discover,
develop and apply your talents.
Use economic thinking to create the greatest benefit while using the least resources.
Because most resources are scarce,
we need to be intentional about
how we use them, which means
we cannot recklessly use resources
without any thought of whether we
are being effective in our usage.
Cooperation creates real value in society – for yourself and others.
When we have a win-win focus, we
can expand our resources, knowledge,
and capabilities to achieve our goals
by collaborating with others
