Initiative by the White House and the SBA to connect young and aspiring entrepreneurs with SBA officials, local business advisors and resources to help them start or grow their own small business. With youth unemployment twice the national average in many communities, particularly communities of color and veterans, the Obama administration recognizes a need to promote and better support the efforts of young people to create jobs for themselves and others. The SBA is holding five YES forums in 2011 that will reach a broad audience, including young veterans, urban and rural entrepreneurs, and others.
