Cultural Creatives™ Entrepreneurial Academy. (CCEA), a premier, world class comprehensive training academy designed specifically for our youth aging out of the Foster Care system.  

Our objective is to engage, empower and encourage Cultural Creatives™ to work through our patented process of transforming individuals from their current state to enlightened entrepreneurs.  No other training comes close to offering the cultural creative™ the knowledge, experience, material and resources this program offers.  This program can be absolutely fail proof. If a student attends, participates and completes the work, their success should be guaranteed.  

The specific goal of CCEA is to create income solutions for our veterans and other cultural creatives with special skills and a passion to work for themselves. Obtaining funding for this training is an important component of our strategy.  In many cases, training is the only thing a veteran requires to move into a new career.

More than 23,000 children will age out of the US foster care system every year. After reaching the age of 18, 20% of the children who were in foster care will become instantly homeless.  Strategically investing in entrepreneurial training and education for these youth is one way to unlock more opportunity for other youth aging out of the system, at a time when the economy has shifted from manufacturing to lower-paying service jobs.  Upon completion of this training, not only will the youth be able to run a successful business with continual back office support, but they will also be able to create jobs for others who are aging out of the Foster Care system.  This training will allow our youth to return to their local communities with dignity and the ability to provide for themselves.

The Cultural Creatives™ Entrepreneurial Academy (CCEA) team has brainstormed for weeks to determine exactly what it would take to make our youth successful entrepreneurs.  We wanted to build a program that is fail proof.  We wanted the prospective entrepreneur to be able to concentrate on performing their skill or passion. We believe we have accomplished our goal.  

Our Academy program is the most comprehensive training program available.  The prospective entrepreneur will leave with everything they need to be a successful entrepreneur.  We are partnering with the following organizations to ensure their success:

Prosper Initiative Strategic Alliance

BMI Business Development Group

Palo Alto Software

Quality Courier

IYP Management Group

SkyBlue Credit Repair (For those who qualify)

We are asking for your financial support with this program.  This is a ten-month comprehensive program that will train the prospective student in every aspect of running a current business from selecting a business structure to developing and implementing a three year strategic plan.  When the student leaves our program, they will have:

A legal business structure

A DUNS credit file

A complete self-created business plan

Back office business support

An Establish Line of credit

The skill and training for their specified business

The mindset, desire and drive to run an effective business.

As stated above, the current cost of the program is $2500 per student.  We are asking for funds to sponsor 10 students.  

In order to move Georgia’s economy forward, it’s not just about creating jobs. It’s about creating businesses that hire.  This will allow families to reach and remain in the middle class for years to come.
