    YEA! Facebook Page

    The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a year-long program that teaches students in grades 6-12 how to start and run their own, REAL businesses. Students brainstorm business ideas, decide if they want to work by themselves or as a team, write a business plan, pitch their plan to investors for funding, and actually launch their own business or social movement. All of the learning is real and experiential. Students leave the class as business owners, complete with a DBA and bank account!

    YEA! is held on the NCSC Kehoe Center campus every Tuesday from 4:00pm to 7:00pm, beginning in November and ending in May.

    Fall 2016 will mark the 2nd year of the Academy in Richland County, which can now be found in over 117 locations! Again, for more information call 419-522-3211, or contact Bill Sharp at mrachamberfoundation@gmail.com.
