The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a groundbreaking, 7-month program that transforms middle and high school students into real-life entrepreneurs and business owners.

Students will:

  • develop business ideas
  • write business plans
  • conduct market research
  • pitch plans to a panel of investors
  • launch their own legal, fully formed companies and social movements
  • be mentored by local business men and women

Complete with guest speakers from the local business community and behind-the-scenes trips to local companies, the projects-based YEA! approach empowers students to take charge of their futures in a profound way.

The Young Entrepreneurs Academy is not only a wonderful tool to teach students about business, but also a great way to build confident leaders with values. An excellent instrument to unify the business and educational communities, YEA! continues to expand across the country to fulfill our mission of teaching more students how to make a job, not just take a job.
