The International Young Black Wall Street Leadership Academy provides ongoing hands on training to both young men and women interested in becoming successful entrepreneurs. This alternative to education provides the opportunity for participants to learn all aspects in successfully building small businesses, and being successful at organizing and engaging communities in initiatives empowering African American youth/youth of color.
Participants interacts with leaders as their mentors at every level of their learning curve. The leadership academy's uniqueness is that it works with the entire family, an "African Centered Approach to Family and Community Development".
It is not just the participant that has enrolled in the Academy, but the total family must become involved with the project to ensure its success and the success of the family member enrolled. The process encourages building the strength of the community through "capacity building". It assists many single mothers that are now struggling financially to make ends meet in jobs created at $7 per hour, to also gain skills that would help assist her to move forward in a higher paying position, or pursue entrepreneurship as her means of financial advancement. Each family is different, which means each assessment will be different.
The Academy's Co-horts enrolled at one time, are 20 core members that join together, working together as creators and designers of a "GARDEN OF EDEN TRANSFORMATION SCIENCE OF LIVING CENTER", which will be developed as a Hub of Health and Wellness for their community, using IWN's 7 Principles to Optimal Wellness. This ongoing training as entrepreneurs, as well as learning how to continue to build a successful business while in training, provide employment opportunities for their community, as well as helping to transform the "health and well being" of individuals within their community, finally working as change agents in supporting a positive "transformation" within their communities.
