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
1 year 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.

What is the most important thing in starting a business?
Link

I just started my own small business, and I guess I have a few tips. Start a business in a field you have lots of interest and experience in. Without any interest it will just feel like a regular school project or a tiresome assignment you have to complete. Secondly, it would help to go into a type of business that is realistic, as most people don’t have the means or ressources necessary to do anything large scale or nationwide, stick to something that you love and that you can do easily and efficiently which is something that many people would like to purchase. Lastly, just do it! I have had my business idea in my head for a while, and I’ve been thinking and procrastinating on ways to become successful, but one day I didn’t understand why I hadn’t ventured on this path that I thought I knew so well, and just did it. I still have too much to learn, but I’m happy to say that I’m on the right path. Hope this helped, and feel free to message me with any questions!

@Youssef great feedback! It's true sometimes you just need to start and learn in the process

I just feel if you start too early without much experience it may not add much value. I have had some ideas for a while. But starting and putting time and money into this is not very easy unless you have a real plan

Hi everyone - I’m planning on making a non-profit and a consulting business, and what I still want to understand is, how exactly do I get it started?

All I want to understand is, how long does the process take? how do I advertise and build my business? what problems would I come across?

Hi Camille - starting a non-profit isn't an easy process as it requires a lot of paperwork, it is easier to start a company (in the US LLC is the cheapest and quickest).

In terms of business plan and marketing it is a different conversation all together depending on the nature of the business, your goals etc. The first problem you need to worry about is who will help you create a company - perhaps your parents?
