Parents Gallery

Since the inception of Youth Business University, parent involvement has been the key to our organization's success.  As an organization, we feel the following takes place when parents are involved in the lives of their youth:

Benefits for the Youth

  • Youth tend to achieve more, regardless of ethnic or racial background, socioeconomic status, or parents' education level.
  • Youth have better self-esteem, are more self-disciplined, and show higher aspirations and motivation toward school.

Benefits for the Parents

  • Parents increase their interaction and discussion with their youth and are more responsive and sensitive to their youth's social, emotional, and intellectual developmental needs.
  • As parents gain more knowledge of youth development, there is more use of affection and positive reinforcement.
