Henry Cherner, Managing Partner of AIMS360 recently participated with educators and other local business leaders to offer a week-long “Youth Innovative Entrepreneurial Leadership Development” (YIELD) program designed to give local district high school students in Los Angeles an opportunity to experience a hands-on real-life training in targeted industries and facilitated by trade experts.

The participating educators and business experts that participated in this first-ever entrepreneurial program are: Council member Curren D. Price, Jr. Theresa Martinez, Los Angeles Latino Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, Laurence B. Frank, Los Angeles Trade-Technical College President Natalie Orta, Supervisor, Economic Development Division, U.S. Small Business Administration, Los Angeles District Office Constance Anderson, Director, PCR Small Business Development Center Ava Bromberg, The Reef Senior Vice President of Business Development James Bottom, Project Director of the Blackstone Launchpad @USC and Henry Cherner, Managing Director of AIMS360

The intense five-day program taught local inner-city youth entrepreneurial skills for business ownership and included field trips to Microsoft, the NY Film Academy, and Los Angeles City Hall. For five days, students participating in the program were exposed to a variety of industries such as Technology, Apparel/Fashion, Entertainment, Construction, and Culinary Arts. Henry Cherner was delegated to represent and give a presentation about the business side of the Apparel/Fashion Industry and demonstrating the AIMS 360 apparel ERP software.

The youth leadership program was produced in part with the office of Curren D. Price Jr., the Councilmember for the Ninth District in the city of Los Angeles and includes parts of South Los Angeles as well. The program took students from this area, which has a 55 percent high school graduation rate, on trips to workplaces and presentations by executives in the fields of entertainment, construction, the culinary arts and technology.

While the apparel-industry software program AIMS360 is taught to students at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Los Angeles Trade-Technical College, Cal State Poly Pomona, and Saddleback and Fullerton colleges in Orange County, Henry Cherner, AIMS360’s managing partner, is considering expanding the reach of AIMS360’s education program to high-school students. As the program wrapped up, Cherner said he thinks AIMS360 should, “explore increasing its outreach to help youth looking to get a foothold in the fashion industry.”

Cherner said he thinks the fashion businesses would benefit from interns who could perform advanced tasks. He discussed the idea with Price and hoped to make teaching AIMS360 to high school youth part of a public/private program. “We would love to see the younger kids get motivated,” Cherner remarked. “They could get internships before they start college. Knowledge of data entry and enterprise resource planning software could help with that first step into the business,” he said.

“The earlier education starts in these areas the more the youths’ interest is fostered, imagination picqued and innovation and talent nurtured. They are exactly the type of individuals we want to step into our businesses in the future,” notes Cherner.

AIMS was first taught to students at LATTC in 1998. Today the software has been integrated into business curriculums at many more educational institutions for students majoring in apparel-related studies. Students learn how to use ERP software to manage the business side of fashion.

Contributing to education is extremely meaningful to AIMS and highlights the efforts of schools to modernize, while inspiring students to experience software as applied in the real world. AIMS360 had donated over one million dollars in software to fashion schools since the launch of its “AIMS Cloud for Fashion Schools” donation program over the past ten years.

“Education and students are our top priority. Providing ERP solution software is one of the many ways that AIMS reach to support schools nationwide” said Cherner. “We believe that our AIMS’s donation program will help today’s fashion student and will impact their lives and futures in a positive manner as to become tomorrow’s fashion leaders”
