The New American Chamber of Commerce, (NACC) the African American International Chamber of Commerce (AAICC) and the New York Statewide Coalition of Hispanic Chambers of Commerce (NYSCHCC) are pleased to announce our Youth Business Leadership Program (YBLP), first series, Small Business Boot Camp. Our nonprofit organizations are aiming to develop a culture of leadership and excellence among teenagers and young adults from various sectors across New York City, by promoting entrepreneurship and civic engagement.
YBLP provides them with the knowledge, tools and opportunities to be the leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. NACC established YBLP in 2012. YBLP strives to address the problem of economic and educational inequality in Black and Hispanic communities of New York City by means of two main frameworks:
The organization will operate several multicultural youth programs at our Chamber and throughout New York City in different communities, providing young Black and Hispanics with the tools from the world of business, management and entrepreneurship. Furthermore, as members of our Chamber, we will guide these teens throughout their high school and college years, as they establish business enterprises in New York City.
Our potential partners are local chambers, the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), municipalities, businesses, social organizations and other leading companies working to empower young Black and Hispanic entrepreneurs.
