"Communities Helping A New Generation of Entrepreneurs, Inc." (CHANGE, Inc. ) is an organization that provides entrepreneur and money management related resources.
Communities Helping A New Generation of Entrepreneurs, Inc. (CHANGE) was founded in 2005 by Ms. Sonya Lane and Mr. A.D Wilbourn. CHANGE was created to bring awareness about small business development and managing money. In early 2004 A.D. Wilbourn began to formulate a music production company, during his start up phase Sonya and A.D. often discussed how great it would have been if they had known in high school that owning a business was an attainable goal.
They began research on entrepreneurship in Arkansas, and found some the schools had teachers who implemented entrepreneurship or economics into their lessons during the school year. This prompted them to start providing resources to the community to bring greater awareness about entrepreneurship across the state of Arkansas.
Entrepreneurship plays a vital role in today’s society for various reasons. The entrepreneur is often the source for providing new and improved products and services. The best ideas for new businesses come from our youth. 7 out of 10 high school students say that they would like to start a business someday. The future of the small business world lies within the creative minds of our youth, and they should be given all the skills needed to turn a great idea into a successful business.
Hi! I am Sonya Lane
I try to learn something new each day and I thank God for my many blessings. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, resources, time and anything else I have to help others. My goal is to make sure that the youth in Arkansas strive to be the best, learn to recognize opportunities, seek higher education and stay alcohol and drug free. The youth are our blessings from God and it is up to us to make sure that they are well prepared to be our next Leaders, Parents, Educators and much more.
