YVEI is a social enterprise that aims to link two concepts which are held as a false dichotomy in other models: private interest and public benefit. YVEI first and foremost is dedicated to accomplishing, strengthening, and enhancing its mission: helping young adults realize their immeasurable potential for greatness, promote social responsibility and community revitalization, stimulate community and economic growth, and to improve the standards of living and emotional well being of all young adults; with special attention to those who are low to moderate income, minorities and those at-risk of exposure to drugs, unemployment, violence, and disease.

The BI is an entrepreneurial program in which young adults learn to become entrepreneurs by receiving pro-active, value-added support, access to critical tools, information, education, contacts, resources and capital that might otherwise be unaffordable, inaccessible or unknown.
