Youth Entrepreneurship Program with Latvia & Lithuania


Youth Entrepreneurs 2018

In summer 2017 and 2018, FIUTS hosted groups of high school students and adult mentors 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 countries and are members of the 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 the U.S. Embassy Riga.
