Price FREE Register

Event description

Motivational speaker Karen Bailey visits Paradise Creek Nature Park to convey a successful approach to helping youth and underserved individuals become entrepreneurs. Youth Earn & Learn Ambassadors will serve free snacks they’ve prepared.

An influential leader in the business community, Ms. Bailey strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students, business owners and clients. Ms. Bailey is the C.E.O. of The Resource King Intl. and Executive Director of Youth & Family Empowerment Services. She founded Youth Earn and Learn Jobs-for-Kids©, a business and workforce development training program for youth ages 12 - 17. Because so many adults lacked the same basic skills, Adult Learn and Earn Jobs-for-U© (Unemployed or Underemployed) was created. Their mission is to keep kids off the streets and train and develop the next generation of Leaders, CEOs and Entrepreneurs. They connect healthy eating with helping Youth, Seniors and reducing the impact of food deserts on marginalized communities.
