May 20, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Youth advocate and speaker Ugo Lord has been confirmed as one of the life skills trainers to speak at the Las Vegas Summer Business Institute (SBI) program for area teens on Friday, June 20th, 2014.
Known for his contributions in youth advocacy and genuine interest in helping others succeed, Ugo has made it his mission to uplift and inspire. His increasingly popular YouTube based talk show, The Ugo Lord Show, offers an honest platform where he discusses common issues and topics encountered by many young adults.
As he works with the Summer Business Institute, he hopes to connect with the youth participating in this year's program -- the same way he connected and was influenced when he attended as a high school teen.
"A summer internship is an invaluable way to gain the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to achieve your ultimate life goals," says Ugo. "SBI takes this concept to a whole new level through their life skills training program, along with several other noteworthy programs. I feel honored to be invited back to the program, but this time, as a life skills coach."
A highly successful program, the Summer Business Institute matches students with their dream internship for an 8-week period throughout the summer. The focus of the program is to give the youth opportunities to experience a corporate environment from working inside. Along with on-the-job interaction and insightful resources, the program also includes business mentoring, life skills training, financial management and a civic engagement project.
