THE KNIGHTS WELCOMES YOU
Building Human Capital
CREATING STRONG COMMUNITIES THROUGH STRONG PEOPLE
Our Youth Development and Entrepreneur Program (YDEP) provides ages 13 to 21 a Sponsored 4 to 8 week youth development and leadership skills program aimed at supporting and empowering the youth of the Underrepresented Communities. The program provides engaging and activity-based workshops that provide participants the technical skills needed to begin a successful career and start their own business in Dallas. Youth learn about the different types of business entities, licenses/permits, how to strategically market their services/product, the importance of networking and communication, social skills, financial literacy (personal/business), the importance of access to capital and credit, and the creation of their individualized business plan and resume.
With this initiative, our goal is to build, help sustain a more cohesive community as well as promoting a greater understanding of our communities’ needs and aspirations.
