Frisco Sunrise Rotary Club sponsored Frisco Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) graduate, founder and CEO of Generations Hope’s mission to bring memorable experiences and meaningful relationships to underprivileged youth living in multi-family residences.
Her desire to help others coupled with her passion for mentorship sparked her vision to create a non-profit to help others. “My journey started with a simple act of kindness” Lindsey Kopplow.
The Young Entrepreneurs Academy, or YEA!, is a groundbreaking educational program that takes students ages 11 to 18 through the process of starting and running real businesses/social movements over the course of a full academic year.
“I’m so proud of Lindsey Kopplow for putting the knowledge she gained through the Frisco Young Entrepreneur Academy (YEA!) program to such great use by following her heart and starting a non-profit to serve hungry children in our community. Generations Hope began operations at the same time jobs were starting to be affected by the COVID-19 crisis and food insecurity became a reality for so many individuals and families. As a small business owner myself, I know how challenging starting a business is. I’m so thankful that the Frisco community has come together to provide resources to educate our next generation of business and nonprofit leaders like Lindsey.” -Texas State Senator Angela Paxton.
YEA! students all across the country are learning the ropes as they become their very own CEOs! “YEA! gives our CEOs the tools they need to be successful in business, and in life!” Tony Felker, President and CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce.
