    an Environment for Success, a Nashville nonprofit that provides
    entrepreneurial educational programs to disadvantaged youth, received
    $14,000 grant from the Staples Foundation for Learning Inc., a private
    foundation created by Staples Inc.The nonprofit’s officials say funding
    from Staples will support the Youth About Business Summer Camp, which
    offers an entrepreneurial approach to learning by exposing youth to
    business theories and principles taught by business professionals from
    financial, legal, human resources, marketing and technology.Officials
    say Youth About Business Summer Camp inspires low-income students to
    gain hands-on experience in business by spending one week at a
    university campus learning business trends and best practices and
    concluding their study with a visit to Wall Street.

    The program
    introduces youth to the business setting and allows them to develop
    mentoring relationships with executives in the field.Creating an
    Environment of Success was established in 1992 as a financial-literacy
    and career-preparedness program for underserved youth. Youth ages 10 to
    18 learn about business and participate in the management of several
    small companies, including a thrift store.Founded in 2002, Staples
    Foundation has contributed nearly $12 million to charities that provide
    educational opportunities and job skills with an emphasis on
    disadvantaged youth.
