The company’s Fall 2007 Young Entrepreneur Training class consisting of young adults from 8 U.S. states, 4 countries, and 9 major institutions of higher learning.

Steve Conley, CEO of We Care Worldwide says, “It’s about time adults stop complaining about our young people and start doing something to change things. Parents and other responsible family and community people have to think about whether to splurge on Play Station 3, expensive sneakers and electronic gear, or really invest in changing the mindset of today’s children. And we have to start training our children to do business in a networked way with people who do business with us in a respectful way. That’s what we’re doing here,”
Numerous experts in their field who have already achieved success in their respective areas augment the Institute’s faculty. Many will also serve as mentors, and provide support for micro-business development. Each is dedicated to supporting tomorrow’s young business leaders.
