Thank you for visiting U.S. Hispanic Youth Entrepreneur Education (USHYEE). We focus on the high school
to college continuum for Hispanic youth. We also help high school age Latinos understand that Entrepreneurship is a career
option. Hispanics are the youngest & fastest growing segment of the U.S. population and Latina's account
for the growth of more businesses than any other demographic in the marketplace today! We believe that the Hispanic population
will be a key in maintaining America's competitive advantage in tomorrow's Global Economy.
We are constantly looking for tools that will help youth succeed in school and in life. If you are a student,
we invite you to join our community of success oriented young people. All we ask is that you tell a fellow student about us
so they can take advantage of everything USHYEE has to offer too!
