Enter as a student. Graduate as a CEO.
That’s the YEA! Loudoun program, where students launch their very own businesses in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. This fun, hands-on program meets weekly after school and helps go-getters in grades 7–12 identify their passions, transform their ideas into fully formed businesses or social movements, and develop lifelong leadership skills.
We are looking for creative, motivated students with a strong work ethic and a passion for anything they want to turn into a profitable business or an effective social movement.
Tuition for this 30-week YEA! Loudoun program is $695 and that includes all instructional materials, event registrations, meals for each class and other supplies.
A limited number of scholarships are available. Please be aware that the nomination of a student does not guarantee a scholarship.
Students that apply or are nominated to participate in the Class of 2017-18 will receive additional information about the Young Entrepreneurs Academy and a personal invitation to the YEA! Informational Sessions this summer. All students are welcome to apply!
