YBU's SIDI 2013 Summer Camp Featuring Youth Motivational Speaker DJ Priest 

 

In 2012, the CEO of Youth Business University was inspired by various individuals to birth a Youth Empowerment and Enrichment Summer Program.  As a result, Youth Business University was granted a DeKalb County Parks & Recreational Summer Food Service Program underwritten by the United States Department of Agriculture.

Due to an executive decision, Youth Business University decided to delay the launch of the youth summer program until 2013.

In 2013, Youth Business University decided to establish a collaborative business partnership with Self Image Development, Inc and together they launched the Brand and Empower Your Youth Summer Program which served over 60 youth from the age of 5 to 16 years old. 

The Youth Buisness University "2013 Brand and Empower Your Youth Summer Academy took place at 3342 International Park Dr SE, Atlanta, GA 30316.

On each day of the 9 day summer academy, students were required to write down either on a note card or their notebook, at least three new life enhancements they learned.  As a result, a student attending the entire camp learned at least 27 new life enhancements. 

Based on feedback from parents, students attending this camp, and the debriefing management strategy team, the program was a huge success.
