"My kid's confidence has increased SO MUCH!"

– Tammy Black, CEO of community based afterschool org in Detroit on scholarship serving 15 youth, 7-15 in an 8-week summer program using VentureLab.

All of the girls in our program were from socioeconomically disadvantaged and underserved backgrounds. The girls gave us great feedback about their confidence in going out and starting their businesses. Empowering girls to shape their own futures by providing the skills and resources necessary to pursue entrepreneurship is invaluable and we really appreciate the support from VentureLab!

Thank you SO MUCH for enabling us to create a brighter for the kids in the Fort Worth Stop 6 area. We are forever grateful that, through your gift, we are empowered to positively impact the children, families, and communities that are typically overlooked.

Using it (VentureLab Topics in Entrepreneurship) for 5 weeks now. I downloaded it, opened it up, starting using and it works! The VentureLab resources and they're easy to follow! If I can do it, then so can other teachers! Your activities have meat! Other entrepreneurship programs are more like appetizers. VentureLab offers a full course meal. The students are engaged and they're liking the activities, especially when they get to make things.
