NEW YORK, NY, July 31, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It was revealed recently that despite the far more optimistic economy, youth employment is at its lowest figure for 60 years. Adding to this, student debts is soon set to hit and surpass $1 trillion, so it's fair to say that the future may not be looking too bright for America's youth.
However, despite the worrying statistics, sales and marketing firm Marketing on 6th, NYC, INC believe there are still many opportunities available to America's youth, providing they receive the right support. Many young people are choosing to remain optimistic about their future career path thanks to an impressive rise in entrepreneurship. It's reported that 23% of young people started their own business last year directly due to the lack of opportunities on the job market. 15% of these young people foresaw the difficulty in finding employment and started their business whilst still in college. Marketing on 6th, NYC, INC believe this generation of driven bright individuals deserve more support from the government and that entrepreneurship should be promoted among more of the country's youth as a possible career path.
In a step towards raising awareness of the issues faced by America's youth and the lack of resources available to young entrepreneurs, Marketing on 6th, NYC, INC are set to host an event to help raise the profile of the #FixYoungAmerica movement. The movement is a collaboration of businesses and organisations who are dedicated to encourage and teach young entrepreneurs through crowdfunding campaigns and business partnerships. The movement hopes to provide more learning opportunities to young entrepreneurs and further their reach across the country.
Marketing on 6th, NYC, INC's #FixYoungAmerica workshop is set to debate ideas with a focus group about ways to get young people into work, as well as discuss what governmental support needs to be in place for young people. With 74% of students claiming they have no access to entrepreneurial resources there's no doubt that the integration of entrepreneurship lessons into education will be high on the agenda. Entrepreneurship could provide students with transferrable, highly useful, creative and financial skills which could not only help students in their other subjects, but could drastically reduce school dropout rates among less academically minded students.
With the #FixYoungAmerica movement set to challenge the government on the barriers that are preventing many young entrepreneurs from achieving their goals, Marketing on 6th NYC, INC's workshop is sure to be a lively debate. Government regulations currently limit the number of self-employed people within a state, and prevent start-ups from raising much needed capital through crowd-sourcing. Many see this as counter-intuitive as loosening the restrictions on start-ups could rapidly improve the availability of jobs for young people.
Marketing on 6th NYC, INC hope that their workshop will highlight the issues faced by America's youth, and be a vital step towards a more stable future for entrepreneurs.
