About the Young Entrepreneurs Program

The Young Entrepreneurs Program, for youth 11-17, teaches young girls and boys entrepreneurial and life skills, and helps them spend quality time with their parent or other adult.

If you’re part of an Owlette/BRO team and haven’t yet joined our O2 Owlettes Facebook group, what are you waiting for! Our private Facebook group gives our Owlettes and BROs the chance to regularly interact with each other, receive personal messages from Origami Owl® Co-Founder Bella Weems-Lambert, and get tips and training to grow their Origami Owl businesses! More details on this below!

You can also join our Instagram account O2_Owlettes!

The email address for all things Young Entrepreneurs Program is Owlettes@origamiowl.com

Have an Owlette/BRO success spotlight story you’d like featured in an upcoming Hoot email? Email us at Recognition@OrigamiOwl.com.

Young Entrepreneurs Incentive for July

Our July incentive for Owlettes and BROs is to continue getting as many You Matter Rewards Points as you can this month. If you haven’t taken a look at the rewards that can be redeemed with your You Matter Rewards Points on O2YouMatterRewards.com, take a moment and do that NOW so you can set a goal for yourself! If you have your eyes set on something already, this is the time to make it happen!
• Watch the quick Facebook Live training, on the O2 Owlettes FB page, by our OWL-some Senior Director of Field Operations & Training Dawn Campbell. She will help you understand the program a little bit better and how you can earn points.
You can take a look at this link, again, to refresh yourself with the You Matter Rewards Program .
• The TOP point earners in July will receive a mystery box filled with O2 goodies.

  • We are not putting a limit to the amount of earners we can have.
  • The number of earners will be determined by the highest numbers, and the cut-off will be where the highest numbers drop. This allows us to potentially have more earners.

• If you are a new Owlette or BRO, who joined in JUNE or JULY, you are eligible for double points during your first two months in the business. We will only be taking half of the points you earn to keep it fair for everyone.

How to Submit for the July Incentive:

By August 1, please send an email to Owlettes@origamiowl.com with the following information (subject: July Incentive)

  • Full Name (if you are sending an email for your Owlette/BRO, please include their name as well)
  • Designer ID number (this is extremely important)
  • Total number of YOU MATTER REWARDS points earned from July 1 – June 31.

This is an honor system, so please make sure only the points earned by the Owlette or BRO is submitted. Many of our Young Entrepreneurs work their businesses completely alone and we want to try and keep this as fair as possible to honor their work.

Destination Designer Program: Post-Owlette Experience

We are extremely excited to announce our NEW! Destination Designer Program!

This program is for existing Owlettes and BROs who turn 18 and transition into Independent Designers. The program provides personalized support, throughout their first year of being an Independent Designer, to help guide their progression and start them off strong in their new role. The program is designed to help them achieve important milestones faster, and our Senior Field Development Specialist Chelsea Larson will be providing four (4) Zoom Calls (one per quarter) to coach recently graduated Owlettes and BROs during their first year as a Designer. These Zoom Calls will be held in August 2019, November 2019, February 2020 and May 2020. We’ll post the dates, one month prior, on the Designer calendar on your Back Office Dashboard.

Okay, how about combined shipping?

We’ve also created a flat rate for combined shipping! We’ve lowered the rate for the U.S. and are giving our Canada Designers the lowest rate possible, regardless of your order size!

U.S. Jewelry + Business Supply + Willing Beauty orders (combined shipping) $9.95

April Young Entrepreneurs Program Incentive + Spirit Week Schedule

April Young Entrepreneurs Program Incentive + Spirit Week Schedule

During Pay It Forward month, we want to continue Origami Owl’s kindness movement and we know our Young Entrepreneurs can make an extraordinary impact on the lives of others.

Our April Young Entrepreneurs Program incentive is all about helping others by having a fundraiser for someone who’s in need, or a business/organization in your community. Or, both!

Earners will get an O2 Mystery Box full of items hand-selected by Origami Owl® Co-Founder Bella Weems-Lambert!

Here’s how you can earn this month’s incentive:

1. Identify a person, business, or organization you would like to help. Write down who/what business/organization you have chosen to help and brainstorm fundraising ideas.

2. Watch Senior Director of Field Operations & Training Dawn Campbell’s “Fundraising Basics” in the O2 Virtual Academy Facebook group. Get more tips here.

If you’re not part of the O2 Virtual Academy Facebook group, please join right away. There is so helpful information and learning in this group.

Scroll down to Dawn’s “Fundraising Basics” training and you’ll find all the shareable assets you’ll need to have a successful fundraiser.

3. After you’ve watched Dawn’s training, you can now start to create your plan of action, using the ideas you brainstormed. You can have one or two fundraisers – however you choose to do it!

4. Reach out to everyone you know and ask them to support your fundraiser! Don’t forget to share your goal with them. Also share, with great confidence, that you are a Young Entrepreneur. Tell them your “Why,” share our mission statement, tell them how you can make a difference together and ask them to help you reach your goal.

5. Shine bright and BELIEVE you can do it! You have a tremendous opportunity to make a big impact with your business – YOU are your most valuable asset!

Please send the following details to Owlettes@origamiowl.com by May 1:

  • Tell us about your fundraiser(s) and who you helped. Please share the impact the fundraiser made on both you and the recipient(s). Don’t forget to include how much money you raised.
  • Include your Jewelry Bar® ID(s) for the fundraiser(s).
  • Include Order Numbers that are relevant to your fundraiser(s).

Virtual Spirit Week: Monday, March 30 – Friday, April 3

Since you’re not in school to participate in Spirit Week, we’re hosting a virtual one! Make sure you’re a part of the O2 Owlettes Facebook group to participate each day!

Here’s what each day’s theme will be:

MONDAY: Crazy Hair Day – Every day is probably Crazy Hair Day right now, and we want to see yours! Show us your crazy hair by posting a photo!

TUESDAY: Vacation Vibes Day – If you could go anywhere on vacation today, where would you go? Use your imagination to think about your dream vacation and pretend that you are all packed up and ready to arrive there today! Dress up like a tourist who represents your destination, or become your destination for a day! Please share in a post or video what destination you are representing and why it’s your dream vacation!

WEDNESDAY: Jammies & Jokes Day – Wear your favorite, most comfy, pajamas and share a joke to put smiles on faces today! You can post your joke or make a video of you telling it! Happy April Fools’ Day!

THURSDAY: Unsung Heroes Day – Dress like an Unsung Hero today. An Unsung Hero can be anyone you feel makes a difference in your life, the lives of your family, your community, etc. We have many Unsung Heroes working hard right now (doctors, nurses, grocery store workers, the list goes on and on). But, it could also be someone who has always been a hero in your life, like a parent, teacher, coach, friend, etc. Dress up like them, post or create a video sharing why they are an Unsung Hero in your eyes and thank them. Tagging them would be fantastic, too!

FRIDAY: Empowerment Day – Pick your favorite Origami Owl Empowerment Collection piece (Necklace, Bracelet, Ring) and share a post of you wearing it with your favorite empowering quote! Make sure to also share why you selected the beautiful piece(s) you did!

SATURDAY (Bonus Day!): Origami Owl Charm Day – Pick your all-time favorite Origami Owl Charm and dress up like it! Post or create a video sharing why it’s your favorite. Then, think about a few people who you would gift this Charm to in a Locket, and post YOURSELF on their pages telling them why you picked this Charm for them!
