Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!)

YEA! is a groundbreaking and fun after-school program where students from grades 6 to 12 go through the process of starting and running real businesses over the course of a full academic year. Through the YEA! program, 11 - 18 years olds start out as students and graduate as CEOs.

This year, the Campaign issued grants to local chambers of commerce nationwide to launch this program in their schools for the 2012-2013 school year. To learn how to bring the program to your community, email Laura Garcia
