Hey everybody! My name is Johnson Jin and am currently located here in Dallas. Almost a year ago, I founded a non-profit organization called Global Youth Coalition that is focused on the principles of education. Our mission is to help underprivileged communities, domestically and globally, with an emphasis on education. At GYC we believe education opens doorways to greater things and that it is our responsibility and purpose to help educate others. Global Youth Coalition is separated into smaller groups, or chapters, that allow us to have multiple points of influence not just throughout the United States, but in countries across the globe. Each individual chapter provides educational opportunities to a multitude of different communities that ultimately delivers a larger impact on a world-wide level. We have chapters that span from Pakistan, Turkey, China, California, and more. As we are always seeking for expansion, I would be happy to answer any questions and possible chapter start-ups at your location! Thank you for taking the time for reading this and feel free to shoot me a message!

Hi everyone. My name is Shivali and I am a designer at inu, a platform which aims to connect students with like-minded interests from all over the world. We have created a survey to understand how not having people in your community to talk with or create projects with has affected you. The survey is anonymous and one of our responses will have a chance to receive an Amazon gift card! forms.gle/... rp9adkBPx6

Hello everyone! We are still taking in more people to create chapters beyond Arizona! Below is the original message:

My name is Nikita Bharati and I'm a sophomore from Arizona. I'm the President/co-founder of Girl STEMpowerment, a group that works to mitigate the gender gap in STEM fields, by teaching local STEM-based workshops to girls in grades 3-8. Locally, we have had a lot of success in our workshops, which we have held at various venues such as elementary schools, libraries, 4-H groups, etc. We also established a partnership with a group in California called "All Girls Math Tournament" to hold the very first one here in Arizona. We anticipate there to be about a 150 girls to attend. Another cool project we are starting to work on is a partnership with an organization called CHOICE Humanitarian. What our project focuses on is building schools and giving education to girls in Kenya through fundraisers, and traveling to Kenya to help build them. Our group feels that we are at a stage where is appropriate to scale up beyond the state of Arizona, so we are looking for potential candidates to establish Girl STEMpowerment chapters in their state! If you're interested, please private message me to talk further about this. Thank you!

Would any of you guys be interested in being a part of a gen Z only entrepreneurship community where we interview other teen/adult entrepreneurs, find team members, discuss new technologies/fields, connect, and share resources? I think this would be an interesting project to work on, but I'm not sure if people would be interested in it.

Hi!

My name is Johnson Jin and I am a 2021 student. I am the president and founder of an organization called the Global Youth Coalition where we believe that the youth generation is responsible with helping unprivileged communities in predominantly the education field. Over the past year, we have expanded across the US with several international chapters as well located in Turkey, Pakistan, and China. By having each chapter help with their local region, it will create a large impact to the world that we are all connected to through a network in of our organization. In my local chapter for example, we do biweekly reading buddies in an under privileged communities as well as we are working on a bookshelf to distribute to a facility such as Boys and Girls club. I am also flying out to Seattle in March as an invitational speaker at a conference. With this being said, I am not trying to boast any accomplishments, but trying to convey that GYC has a bright future ahead and we are welcome to any new members. As we are looking for means of expansion, if you are interested in starting a chapter in your school or want any details feel free to message me!

Hey guys - what are some business ideas that you think you can start while in high school? Beyond lemonade stands and apps (haha i know everyone is building an app these days).

What's wrong with the lemonade stands? 50 stands around a city making $50 a day each sounds like a good summer business for a high school student and will probably cover your college tuition...

An app to track all lemonade stands around you

I think the problem is everyone focused on apps while an app is just part of the story. There is nothing wrong with building an app as long as it solves a real problem and can be turned into a business
Hello fellow entrepreneurs!
I am faced with the need to raise additional funds for my organization (GenZVotes), and was struck with a glorious idea: ask the other smart brains on this platform! If you know of innovative ways (which I might not have thought of yet), please let me know!

Marek - do you know airbnb founders story? It is a great idea for you to raise money. See link below

medium.com... 6e62cf4c4c

I do agree with John you need to think who cares more about GenZ votes - suspect it will be democrats. You don't have to push anyones plans but convincing them to provide some funding for the cause like this would make a lot of sense
5 months ago
Unless you ask people to support a cause they care about raising money (without it being a financial investment) is tough task. So either you sell people something they really want or find people who truly care about new voters

There are so many funding campaigns started by HS students that I feel like you really need to be creative when it comes to raising substantial amount of $ and go beyond what parents can contribute. I like airbnb cereal boxes idea!
Hi guys! Has anyone actually started a business here? I am talking about HS students starting something and just want to see what your experience is and how you manage both school and work?

What is this?

Hi everyone. Our new website is engagestem.org. Also, here's some more information about what we do:

Tech Literacy for Seniors is a program designed to help seniors become comfortable and capable with using their devices. We coordinate a network of chapters, led by Chapter Leaders and supported by student volunteers, which provide free tech help to seniors in the surrounding area. Typically, Chapter Leaders organize a group of volunteers and find a location to teach at (like a library). Then, they hold tech help sessions where student volunteers tutor the seniors one-on-one.
