“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.” —Bob Nardelli
Youth Creates is fortunate to have a team of devoted and experienced coaches.
When advising Youth Creates on how to kick-start a business, Dr. Takeda-Tinker, President of CSU-Global campus emphasizes on building a community as “interest starts from human interactions”.
Dr. Takeda-Tinker encourages Youth Creates to build a strong local community by reaching out to different youth groups and to build an extensive virtual community by utilizing the modern social network and online meeting platforms.
Communications among peers have a great impact on youth motivations and behaviors. The positive influence of Youth Creates is going to benefit youth near and far. Establishing a resilient youth community is an important step to realizing the Youth Creates mission.
