Entrepreneurship Program Alumni Tend to Have Healthier Personal Finances, Higher Career Satisfaction

The desire to determine Youth Entrepreneurs’s (YE) efficacy and impact has driven the need to analyze its alumni against non-Youth Entrepreneurs students. Understanding the program’s long-term impact on its students in various areas of their lives will aid in driving necessary transformations within the Youth Entrepreneurs organization. Overall, alumni reported greater self-actualization, soft skills, and career satisfaction than non-affiliated students, among additional metrics. While various improvements to the research and methods process need to be made in future studies, the results found from this research indicate Youth Entrepreneurs is having a marked positive impact in the lives of its constituents, namely alumni. Future studies will utilize insights from this research as a guide to determine movement along the self-actualization continuum in students, educators, and alumni.
