Are you a Leader? Are you interested in starting your own business? Are you passionate about solving a community issue like... homelessness, poverty, pollution, women's rights, health care, racism, access to education?
The Youth Venture summer camp is a five-day summer camp led by Ashoka Seattle staff. Staff help students select a social issue that they are passionate about and teach students how to form a business approach to address their chosen issue. At the end of the week, students pitch their idea to a community panel and receive vital feedback and up to $1000 in seed funding to launch their Youth Venture.
