FraserNet Commits $350 Million To Help Black Students Build Their Personal Network

August 6, 2010

TheBuzz — George C. Fraser, Founder and Chairman of FraserNet, Inc. and the PowerNetworking Conference makes nearly a $350 million dollar commitment to help Black students build their personal support network of relationships. The program is entitled, TheYESNet: The Youth Empowered to Succeed Network.

The Network’s goal is to provide 1 million Black students (ages 17-25) with free and easy access to critical contacts and other networking products and services over the next 5 years. A student membership is valued at $349 each, but will be underwritten by FraserNet, and provided free of charge to students 17-25 years old. TheYESNet memberships will enhance student’s development at an earlier stage in life, and help them advance beyond just a college education or additional training. It’s structured to help students to not only excel in their education, but to also build the key relationships/network they will need to succeed at work, home and in the community.

Students will get a jump on their success by accessing FraserNet’s network of 51,000 top Black professionals, business owners and community leaders. A network Fraser built over the last 25 years. “One good contact in our network, plus the total membership experience could be priceless for students as they move forward in life,” says George Fraser.
