October 2016, I had the opportunity to engages students of Dekalb County high schools during one of the the programs operated by Y.E.. During the marketing/business myself and young entrepreneurs from in the Atlanta area convened in a panel style discussion with students. The purpose was to expose them to options in the workforce other than the typical employment scheme; one where the employer dictates the employee's wages and activities.
