Elijah Pullings is the director of YouthPreneur Foundation.

It’s called YouthPreneur Foundation. Elijah Pullings, a senior at Monacan High School, is the director.

He says it’ll focus on business, financial literacy and leadership. He also says it’ll allow participants to put their skills to the test.

They’re looking for others to join the group.

“People that want to be entrepreneurs, supervisors, executives — just leaders in any form. Even politicians,” said Pullings.

Pullings says it’s about networking and learning about other perspectives.

“We want to be able to come together, share our ideas, strategies on how to execute and game plan,” he said. “Together we’ll be able to accomplish more things.”

YouthPreneur Foundation is having its first meet and greet this weekend. They’ll have guest speakers and share their plan for 2017.
