Youth Entrepreneurship Program with Latvia & Lithuania

In summer 2017, FIUTS will host nine high school students and three adults from Latvia and Lithuania as part of the Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP). All participants have been part of a year-long entrepreneurship program in their home country and are members of the two teams that won the recent entrepreneurship competition that was the culmination of their program.

During their time in Seattle, students and adults participate in workshops, site visits, and volunteer service activities focused on entrepreneurship. Participants gain skills and experiences that they can use in their own entrepreneurial initiatives once they return home. They stay with host families for a portion of their time in Seattle.

FIUTS produces the Youth Entrepreneurship Program in partnership with Apvieniba JUMS and the U.S. Embassy Riga.
