Why is Youth Entrepreneurship so important? 

We are surrounded by news stories that the future of the workplace will be defined by robotics and artificial intelligence and that the role of human workers is becoming obsolete. 

We hear about firms laying off their workforces as 1000s of jobs are outsourced overseas where others are willing to do the same job for less pay. The dynamics of today’s workplace is changing at the speed of light. 

Meanwhile, our children are still being taught the same conventional curriculum that was taught at schools 40 years ago.

Don't just take our word for it...

User Testimonials

 "I really liked the course. The delivery style was totally different than how they teach in school. My friends and I have already created a T-shirt company called Purple Frog and are selling them to other friends and at markets. Everyone wants one!"

"My aunt signed me up for the program, and I did not know what to expect. I followed the program at home on my phone with my dad and we had a lot of fun talking about what I can do when I am older." 

Sixten Peakay
15 years old

"I always thought that older people were entrepreneurs. I didn't realize how many ways there are to be an entrepreneur. Before I took the course, I was a baby-sitter, so I was one already without knowing it. Now I am looking for new ways to make money doing what I think is fun. I learned a lot." 

Brittany

"I dropped off our quiet teenaged daughter to a Volt live event and hardly recognized the excited, animated girl full of ideas who I picked up! Whatever they are doing really works and I won't hesitate to sign her up for their future offerings."

Megan, Parent

"Everyone is talking about entrepreneurship now but few people really know how to deliver that as a learning to young people. Volt has a strong program that really empowers young people with those crucial skills that they need for a fulfilled professional career. I wish I had them when I was younger!"

The Volt Story

Volt Entrepreneurs came about from a worry that kept me up nights on end. I was worried that while technological developments are happening at the speed of light, the education of my children is still based on the same conventional curriculum that we studied 30 year ago! 

How can this possibly prepare them for the highly uncertain and competitive future that lies ahead? Every day we are hearing about jobs being outsourced, factories being replaced by robots, and Artificial Intelligence now capable of solving complex tasks. Imagine what we will be facing in 10 years from now! My kids were not being prepared for this future. 

So then, I asked myself, what are the skills that they need to become prepared for this Mad Max-like dystopian world? 

I started to research this topic and found that self-made business leaders were in total agreement with my dilemma. Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba said, “We cannot teach kids how to compete with the machines who are smarter, we have to teach something unique. In this way, kids will have a chance”. Vishen lakhiani of MindValley had this to say, “We could be doing a better job helping our children earlier on with developing critical business acumen to be more successful later in life.”

Let's Get Started

And finally, Sarah Blakely founder of Spanx said, “When we tap into the potential of ALL students and empower them to learn and dream beyond their limitations… the world will be a better, brighter and more innovative place. And it’s our job to give them the tools to get there.” 

There was the answer I had been looking for! It is the exact same skillsets used by entrepreneurs that can fill the major gap in the conventional education system! These are the skills our children need, but are not being taught. Learning these skills now at an early age will allow them to face anything and persevere with a smile on their face! Unfortunately, I was not able to identify a fully comprehensive, easily accessible and affordable solution- so I set off to build it myself. 

The result has been years of development of an end-to-end entrepreneurial training program based on our 5As framework, geared towards the needs of young adults. 

How to leverage what they are already learning in school and supplement this with the necessary skills to ensure they have a head start and can use their ideas to shape a bright future. Suddenly, the program took off. Starting initially with my children and a few of their friends in small group workshops in our living room, more and more of their friends were requesting to join our “entrepreneur club” evenings. 

Their parents started asking, ‘what are we teaching them?’- their kids had never been so motivated in school, and started seeing creative solutions to problems that we have been surrounded by all of our lives. 

Eventually the word about our program spread so far that we had to re-package the content to be transmitted virtually on line. Today, along with my sister and business partner Sawsan, we are able to share these learnings and embolden any child with the desire to determine their own future. 

All of our courses have been customized and structured around the needs of today’s teen. Soon, they will learn to see the world through a brand new lens. They will inherently look for opportunities where others have overlooked. And, more importantly, they will be equipped with the tools and skills needed to turn those visions into reality, no matter what tomorrow brings. 

Join us along with your teens, as they discover the limitless opportunities that are made available by Adopting, Applying, Aiming, Acting and Advancing their skills and knowledge that will shape the future of their dreams!
