"We've been longtime partners with Young Americans -- they have a great reach into the schools and we have great connections to low-income and disadvantaged youth," said Aaron Bailey, the Chair of the Board of Directors for YouthBiz.

Bailey said that YouthBiz has been working for the past 22 years to offer the chance for more than 5,600 students to receive entrepreneurial skills, make money and have real-life learning experiences.

"We help teachers and students to solve problems through entrepreneurial ventures," he said. "We have such fantastic students and it's always impressive to see them take the foundation we provide and start a business that can change their lives."
