WHAT WE DO

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Overview

The Jamaica Youth Business Trust seeks to reduce unemployment among the nation’s youth by supporting entrepreneurial ventures initiated by young persons. This is achieved through the provision of business counseling, and other forms of assistance designed to enhance the development of the young entrepreneur and promote his/her success in business.  

As an agency involved in the process of social development and transformation, the Jamaica Youth Business Trust has a much broader role to play than solely the provision of business start-up; it also acts as a vehicle to promote the advancement of young people in Jamaica, enhance the social and economic development of the wider community, and increase the nation’s social capital.

In order to help create a new generation of young Jamaican entrepreneurs, the Jamaica Youth Business Trust provides a package of services, which includes business mentoring, training, networking, and advisory services.

Our Mission

To help young people who would not otherwise have the opportunity, to develop their self-confidence, achieve economic independence, fulfill their ambition and contribute to their community through the medium of self-employment and job- creation.
