Apply now for the Young Adult Entrepreneurship Program

The Brownsville Anti-Violence Project (BAVP) is committed to creating opportunities for youth to become involved in paid skill-building projects. All projects will push forward the BAVP's mission to end gun and gang violence in the Brownsville (11212) neighborhood. Keeping both of these commitments in mind, the BAVP is launching and currently recruiting for the Young Adult Entrepreneurship Program (YAEP). 

Example of sample product for the "Brownsville: Stronger Together" anti-violence campaign. 
Youth will learn about small business, the local economy in context and social entrepreneurship during a 12-week paid training with an experienced instructor. After training, Brownsville's young entrepreneurs will then put their skills to use during an 8-week internship position. In their internship, these young entrepreneurs will help build the marketing strategy and product-line of the "Brownsville: Stronger Together" anti-violence campaign. This hands-on experience will be invaluable to any young person looking for direction on launching their own small business ideas. Expert guest speakers and designers will be integrated into the curriculum! 

We have 12 slots. They will go fast! If you are interested or know a young person between the ages of 16-24 years old who lives in the 11212 zip code, please forward the link below to the application. Interested applicants may also pick up a paper application in person at our offices or send a request to to have the application emailed.
