Young Enterprising Society helps Milwaukee youth learn about

Sometimes you have to look back and see how far you’ve come in order to realize what you’ve accomplished.

That’s been the case for Khalif El-Amin and his brother Que El-Amin, who 10 years ago founded the Young Enterprising Society, a Milwaukee group that’s exposed students to career and business opportunities in a part of the city that’s been overlooked.

They’re running a Summer Tech Plus program for Milwaukee-area high school students. The classes, focused on technology, entrepreneurship, public speaking, accounting, and Java programming, continue until August 12.

The two brothers have also expanded a business boot camp for adults, called The Blueprint program, to Green Bay.

“We’re looking to bring it to the Madison market as well,” Khalif said.
