About Us!

Who we are and what we do:

Empowering Youth in Business, otherwise known as EYB, is a student-run organization that strives to offer underprivileged youth in the United States with free business, entrepreneurship, and economics resources and opportunities. High-schoolers are welcome to become a part of our EYB team by applying as a student volunteer to help provide free virtual workshops, tutoring, curriculum, lesson plans, and competitions. Our mission is to inspire both underprivileged youth and student volunteers to share their passion for business and inspire one another to think like true business men and women. Although we are Bay Area-based, we encourage volunteer applications from all over the world.

Hear From Our Parents and Students!

Chetana M.

"I liked that the session was very detailed. I learned about what it means to be an entrepreneur and what characteristics you need to be a good entrepreneur. One thing I liked about the resources were that there were many examples,  which helped to understand the subject better."

Kim M.

"I would like to first say thank you for the opportunity my kids had to be part of this program. My kids enjoyed the most that the classes were taught by young volunteers; it makes the experience enjoyable when it feels like a friend who is going through the lesson with you. The volunteers were very responsive and made every effort to make sure my kids learned."

Vimalini P.

"I would like to say that the seminars are great for students in grades 7/8. I would say it is very knowledgeable and should be encouraged among today’s youngsters. This teaches them of how to manage money, and also gives them a better knowledge of business. All the seminars we attended were very well done."

Rochelle M.

"My daughter liked it despite it being around 30 minutes or even quicker. Although given that short amount of time, it was very informative. Thanks for this opportunity!"

Empowering Youth in Business has been an opportunity to reinforce my knowledge and share it with others who seek that knowledge. Volunteering in this organization has given me a chance to experiment with various fields that I have not experienced before and not only to reinforce my knowledge but to gain more as I prepared myself to share with others.

My experience with EYB has allowed me to meet kids from all over the country, and even someone from Canada! I've truly enjoyed meeting everyone and spreading my knowledge of business to others, and I've learned a lot more about business from teaching as well!

I’ve loved getting to teach other kids about the world of business and all the various facets within it. It’s been a great way to utilize teaching/learning online and expand my own capabilities to teach students of all ages.

I've joined this organization in the past year and since then, was able to connect with both students and parents. It's allowed me to practice communicating effectively, communicating to various audiences, and meet new people! My favourite part is being able to engage and inspire students in learning business-related topics while getting to know them and giving any advice.
