Community Problems create youth EMPLOYMENT

All Communities have issues. what if we combine these issues to be solved and empower youth (through a network of college professor mentors and places like SCORE) to take on a challenge and solve the issue.Youth become Community entrepreneurs For example: Working mothers cannot pick up kids from school on time. enter a Young person who hires a car and picks up kids after school , for a fee. Both happy and make a profit.
