Youth Entrepreneurship

Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders Today

Driving kids to expand their thought process and dream big, South Dakota Afterschool Network hosted their first Youth Pitch Event in 2022. Youth Development Professionals from across the state trained and implimented curriculum with students in middle and high school, helping them to take their ideas and work through a process of implementation. Finalists made their pitches during Children’s Day at the Capitol. Jaymel from the Rapid City Discovery Program was the 2022 winner with his music production ambitions. He received $500 to launch his idea into reality.
