About American Enterprise Day
President Jimmy Carter made a Presidential Proclamation on August 8, 1980 directing that American Enterprise Day be observed on November 15. The Chevron Corporation provided a grant to fund a program called “Getting Involved” in the 1980s to expose young people to capitalism through Future Business Leaders of America.
Future Business Leaders of America is a non-profit association that helps prepare students for careers in business. Young people from middle school up to the post-secondary level are able to join this organization, which now has thousands of members and advisers recognizing the special day with assemblies, festivals and projects like this one.
