Our Mission

The Center believes the region’s youth are the future. And in the words of U.S. Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05), “no young person should have to leave home to find his or her future.” Through Rogers Scholars, Rogers Explorers, and the Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (ELI) youth programs, The Center helps middle school students through rising high school seniors develop the skills they need to seize their potential as the region’s next generation of business and entrepreneurial leaders.
