ActionCOACH Foundation Raises $44,000

for Free Business Education for Youth Worldwide

LAS VEGAS--April 5, 2023--ActionCOACH Foundation held its first Silent Auction during BizX in Nashville, Tenn., April 3-5. The charity raised a little over $44,000 from ActionCOACHES and their clients who were in attendance.

The free YESS Business Basics program is designed to inspire youth to think bigger, igniting the spirit of entrepreneurialism in 12- to 22-year-olds, regardless of income level or career path. The organization plans to raise $250,000 this year to help provide free business education to 2,500 students worldwide.

Investing in these young adults is truly an investment in the future of our communities, helping elevate the level of business education, innovation and potential for local job growth. After all, education and job growth, particularly in a post-Covid world, are the best drivers of long-term economic growth and personal wellbeing for all.

A big thanks go out to the following individuals and organizations who donated Silent Auction items:

Avalanche & Club Tessoro Assessments 24x7 MJ Roasting Co.

Break Free Consulting Brad Sugars LLC Gaylord Opryland Spa

ActionINVEST Caribbean SELF Health Wellness TAP Innovations

The YESS Young Entrepreneur Smart Start program was launched in mid-February of 2021. Since its inception, over 1,200 students have enrolled in the program, and over 200 students have graduated and gone on to form the foundation of the exclusive, international YESS Club.
