Australia’s Leading Young Entrepreneurs Are Headed To Cambodia To Mentor Disadvantaged Youths
Featured on Its The Now – Written by Aylan Aranza
Next month, 30 of Australia’s leading young entrepreneurs are heading over to Cambodia as part of Project Gen Z, to mentor disadvantaged youth on the fundamentals of setting up their own enterprises and business ventures, to help them break the cycle of poverty.
Embarking on the trip of a lifetime, the team includes Jo Schneider, Co-founder of DVE Solutions, Tammy May, Founder of MyBudget, Andrew Morello, Head of Business Development at Yellow Brick Road, Sheryl Thai, Founder of Cupcake Central, as well as Liz and Jesse Volpe, Founders of Project Gen Z, who will raise $200,000+ between them for Sunrise Cambodia this October, before they head off.
Over the course of 10 days, the team of entrepreneurs will educate 100 youths aged between 15-25 yrs in the Dare to Dream Workshop Series where they will learn valuable entrepreneurial tools such as goal setting, the importance of a positive mentality, money management, and leadership skills needed to help them stand on their own two feet and have a head start in life.
The series will wrap up with an Apprentice-style business challenge run by Andrew Morello (winner of ‘The Apprentice’ Australia) and an awards ceremony recognising the efforts of outstanding students, with the overall winner receiving a US$1000 grant to put towards education, or to set up their own venture.
