Making Moguls believes the most disadvantaged and disengaged young people should have:
The Power to start community businesses that change perceptions of ownership and dependency.
The Power to employ their peers and create neighborhood-based manufacturing pipelines.
The Power to acquire transferable skills and pursue new career opportunities.
The Power to create paths to enter the middle class.

Profiles in Success
At age 16, Jorge was determined to make a better life for himself. He enrolled in the META24 entrepreneurial training program, completed the curriculum and started his first business, making wooden game sets and custom furniture through his company, The Built King. Drawing on that experience, Jorge now operates landscaping/gardening, snow removal and paving businesses. Through his talent, hard work and determination, he has turned his life around and is on a path to sustainable entrepreneurial success. “It is real, it is ours. I mean we get to learn something that other high school kids don’t and I am still reading, writing, and doing math, but in a way that I understand,” he says.
Through Your Gift of Work, Wealth or Wisdom, You Can Help Making Moguls
Young minority entrepreneurs are far from common in today’s society. All too often, these enterprising young people run into obstacles that prevent them from tapping their natural talents, limit their career options and keep them from improving their lives and communities.
Your support as an educator, mentor, philanthropist or grantor can open doors to success for aspiring but disadvantaged young entrepreneurs across the nation. You can help remove the barriers to their dreams and give them the critical support to move their lives forward.
