“ At YouthEntity my team is creating a business plan for a community pet food bank. We’re making it happen instead of just seeing pets in need and not doing anything about it.” -
YouthEntity is a promise.
Our goal is to engage and empower youth to discover their potential by providing real-world educational experiences. Through our programs, youth see how their collective efforts play out in real life, building their self confidence and providing an authentic source of hope for their futures.
YouthEntity is a community and youth development initiative dedicated to helping youth succeed, no matter what they want to do when they grow up.
Edlyn, Age 17
“ I plan to go to culinary school, something I had never considered before in my life because I thought I couldn’t do it. But thanks to YouthEntity, I will be doing something I not only love but can also succeed at!” -
YouthEntity is a promise.
Our authentic programs help prepare youth for work and life and give them the confidence they need to chase after their dreams with determination.
YouthEntity fulfills its promise through programs which develop financial knowledge, cultivate business experience and build technological skills. From youth investing real money in the stock market and providing consulting services to community businesses to producing and catering a 1,000 piece dessert buffet for guests, YouthEntity engages students in a unique way.

“ Students take away a lot of knowledge from here, but it’s also about the experience … it is empowering, exciting and motivating as they take all of this into furthering their education …” -
YouthEntity is a place.
The center is also the home of our WebEntity® youth team which provides local businesses and organizations with web site services and the YouthEntity Alpine Bank.
At the YouthEntity Center, our youth teams collaborate with community volunteers and subject matter experts to provide consulting services to businesses.
The YouthEntity Center is a place where youth learn from adults and adults learn from youth supported by state-of-the-art technology.
Lily, Age 12
“ This is different than all of the projects I have done at school and at home because all of those are just ideas. My YouthEntity project is an idea but we’re actually going to make it work!” -
YouthEntity is people.

“Before YouthEntity I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do as a career. YouthEntity has given me a drive to become a professional website designer.” -
YouthEntity is a promise. Our mission is more than a hope or a goal. It’s more than an aspiration. It is a promise. “To help prepare youth for future success regardless of what they want to be …” This is a calling. It’s a reminder that each day is yet another opportunity to “do good”. To make a difference in the lives of others every single day. We are YouthEntity®.
YouthEntity is a place. An “entity” is something that has a real presence. The YouthEntity Center is a place where youth learn from adults and adults learn from youth in a unique and professional environment.
YouthEntity is people. Together with the help of donors, investors, volunteers and the community at large, YouthEntity builds, trains, transforms, leads, facilitates, serves, inspires and assists … We are partners, friends, mentors, leaders, counselors and more.
