Youth Business Alliance is an organization created to help students in schools reach a higher level of success. Through support of volunteer speakers, the YBA has been helping children achieve their high school diplomas, technical training, and hands-on internships since 2012.
The Youth Business Alliance (or YBA) works with 14 schools and approximately 350 students a year, changing lives and enhancing the workforce. Recently, the ACE Charter School of Canoga Park, one of the 14 schools involved with YBA, came to 911 Restoration to see how the inner workings of a national franchise’s headquarters works.
ACE (Alliance Community Empowerment) is known for aiding in many areas of education, from getting a high school diploma and healthcare training to developing life skills and reuniting families. It also plays a part in gang reduction and rehabilitation for embattled students. They go beyond the call of a normal councilor, those helping the students see them as friends and family helping them reach a brighter future. If you’re looking for your chance to rebound, contact them for more information.
Learning from 911 Restoration
Idan Shpizear, co-owner and CEO of the national wear damage restoration franchise has been on both sides of the coin. With the help of his friend and partner, Peleg Lindenberg, Idan built this company starting with $3,000 and a Volvo. Today there are more than 70 branches across the US and Canada providing Fresh Starts to families and business owners whose properties flood or otherwise suffer disaster.
These experiences have shown Idan what it takes to both restore the emotional balance to someone’s life as well as the discipline that goes into making healthy life choices for one’s future. One of the biggest lessons Idan learned was how to market his business well, so that is what he taught the students of YBA and ACE when they came for the tour of the company.
After a presentation imbuing the students with all that he had learned, they were asked to break into groups and attempt to market a basic product. The students did a phenomenal job, applying what they have learned from the after school organizations along with what Idan had just taught them.
They ended the day with a company-wide, interactive game and pizza.
