In 2017, the Montana Chamber Foundation brought to Montana Youth Entrepreneurs, a nationally recognized program that develops employability traits and instills economic and entrepreneurial principles in our future workforce.

  • In Montana, Youth Entrepreneurs has grown from 4 schools in 6 communities to 41 schools in 36 communities.
  • Ninety-six percent of teachers have seen evidence of transformational character-building in their Youth Entrepreneurs students.
  • Eighty-eight percent of teachers reported their Youth Entrepreneurs students gaining a greater sense of confidence through the program.
  • Youth Entrepreneurs helps students develop the soft skills—such as creativity, focus mastery, and a growth mindset—that Montana businesses have told us they’re looking for in potential employees.
  • Through Youth Entrepreneurs, students also are encouraged to develop their own business ideas and compete in a national competition for cash prizes.
