MENTORING

Youth Business Univeristy is proud to  annonce that we have been approved to mentor youth that are involved in the Fort Stewart Georgua National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Academy Mentoring Program.

Over 30 years ago, Youth Business University's CEO Jeffery D. Henderson was a mentor involving the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program and he still mentors his male mentee today Dominic Stokes.

Youth Business University has been mentoring the next generation of youth for over 5 years. Students that have been involved in YBU have attended the following schools:

  • Agnes Scott College
  • Atlanta Art Institute
  • Bard College
  • Georgia Tech
  • Georgia State
  • Jackson State University
  • University of Georgia

Listed below you will find a youtube video clip of YBU student Jordan Randle explaining his experience with Youth Business University:

Jordan Randle's Youtube Video Clip

Listed below you will find two YBU students that CEO Henderson mentored when they were a youth:

DOMINIC STOKES, FOUNDER AND CEO, COMMUNITY TEEN COALITION, INC.

The definition of a leader is: “a person who guides or inspires others.” With his selfless enthusiasm for youth, Dominic Stokes is the embodiment of a leader. After years of working as an operations manager, Stokes finally listened to the call God placed on his heart and began his full-time work with youth.
 
Dominic holds a Bachelor’s of Arts in Business from Clayton State University, a Master’s of Science in Human Resources from Central Michigan University and a graduate certificate in Nonprofit Management from Georgia State University.
 
Dominc was recognized several times in 2016 by the FBI for his inovolved with youth; esecially as it related to gang and youth violence prevention.
 
In 2007, Stokes founded Community Teen Coalition, Inc. (CTC) a youth social entrepreneurship program designed to generate the skills and motivation teens need for future success in post-secondary and entrepreneurship education. Upon watching the news, he became bothered by the constant reporting of teen crime, arrests and deaths mostly within the African-American community. Going along with that news, came the discovery of a sharp decline among youth in matriculation through college, as well as a lack of motivation, goal-setting and optimism of their future.
 
Part of the goal of CTC is to prepare and encourage youth to “create a job”, rather than “get a job”. The organization assists teens with the ability to develop social enterprises and foster a next generation of entrepreneurs – both job creators and entrepreneurial employees.
 
Through his work with CTC, Stokes was led to use the power of visual storytelling to produce “Atlanta’s Young and Homeless” and is currently working on “If Streets Could Talk Atlanta” a documentary focusing on the mindset of Atlanta youth and their interest and involvement in gangs. Stokes’ overall goal is to equip and empower youth with the necessary tools to be the change they want to see in the world.
