Become an SBU Chapter
Stiletto Boss University (SBU) is a youth training program for high-school girls that uses entrepreneurship as the foundation for teaching the power of collaboration, sisterhood and community impact.
Our Common Mission
SBU’s goal is to connect young women to opportunities, build up their social capital and create the next generation of community leaders. SBU helps young women build the skills and confidence needed to create a social enterprise that generates income while also giving back to the community.
Stiletto Boss University partners with local schools to offer our programs within a school setting for students during school hours or after school.
Students meet twice a month (minimum) with SBU Chapter Ambassadors who teach students the basics of entrepreneurship, owning your craft and other business skill sets. Participants are eligible to pitch at SBU’s annual youth pitch challenge. These programs are at no cost to students since they are funded by grants. Current schools participating are: West Charlotte, Harding University High School, Mooresville, Cato Middle School.
Similar to our in school partnerships, SBU works within local community settings to offer our programs to students in a convenient community location.
These programs are also run by our SBU Chapter Ambassadors meeting with students twice a month (minimum) with students being eligible to pitch at SBU’s annual youth pitch challenge at the end of the session. These programs are at no cost to students since they are funded by grants. Currently SBU works in the following communities: Grier Heights and The Harvest Center.
