Global Village (GV) also has a subsidiary Co-op it founded called the “Youth Express Co-op” (YE) that will be owned and operated by youth under the age of 18. It is designed to be the next step beyond the successful Jr. Achievement Program model. The key feature is ownership and control of this Co-op business with a global shopping mall designed and developed by the youth. Through the YE Website they will be able to buy and sell the products/services they like. GV Members will mentor YE Members and teach them how to create their own career through entrepreneurship initiatives. Their Membership in YE will automatically convert into a GV Membership on their 18th birthday. Graduates from YE will become the business and community leaders of tomorrow.
