Business Takeout is a non-profit organization seeking to see black youths in Canada equipped & empowered to live with dignity, purpose & hope by creating pathways to employment and entrepreneurship.
We know that mentorship can help reverses the cycle of poverty and adversity. So, at Business Takeout we provide group business mentoring of 5 to 10 students because we believe that group mentoring has the following benefits:
Business Takeout provides an environment and community where black youths can explore business and creative areas within an innovative space – cultivating the development of entrepreneurial skills, mindsets, self-agency, and the transferability of these skills and mindsets into school, career, and life.
Our students will gain knowledge, hands on experience and resources to transform the way they and others view their communities. Collaboration would be necessary to develop solutions around problems and use their newfound knowledge gained through Business Takeout, to help shape their business approach.
We want our students to be equipped to navigate through our booming technological and entrepreneurial economy. They’re learning to use the resources and information gained through the program to catapult their futures to great success. They’re learning to be change within their communities with the hope of continuing to rebuild and reinvigorate their neighborhoods as they achieve various forms of success.
