Otterbein University is a new host site for the national Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), and is accepting applications for the 2017-2018 class now through September 15. YEA! is a national program launched in 2004, resulting in more than 100 businesses to date, over half of which students have continued after graduation.

The YEA! program develops the next generation of innovators, business leaders and community organizers; fosters the entrepreneurial spirit of America’s youth; and encourages business ownership as a viable career path. It not only educates middle and high school students on how to conceive, launch and run a business enterprise or social movement but also gives them valuable life skills. Participants develop competencies in areas such as problem solving, public speaking, strategic planning and organization.

Middle and high school students experience what it’s like to brainstorm business ideas, write a business plan, pitch the plan to potential investors and launch a business or social movement.  

Otterbein University is new host site for the national Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!). Participants meet weekly from October through May. For more information or to apply, visit www.yeausa.org.
