Young Entrepreneurs Association (YEA)
Entrepreneurship is a great way for young people to learn valuable skills that they can use in their careers and personal lives. These skills include teamworking, networking, critical thinking and creativity. It also provides job opportunities and promotes economic growth.
Young entrepreneurs like Lunetta, Cortes and Kandan have one thing in common: they are first-generation Americans. These entrepreneurs have a unique perspective on the world and are driven by their passions.
YEA is a non-profit organization
YEA fosters the true spirit of entrepreneurship by creating an environment where young entrepreneurs can connect and support one another while growing their successful businesses. YEA also supports young business owners by providing them with exclusive resources and insight. The organization is driven by ambition, vision and confidence. Its members strive to build strong economic organizations that support their communities.
Each year, YEA students compete locally in a “Investor Panel” competition to see who can take their business idea to the next level. The winner of this event goes on to the national competition.
This unique program is a great opportunity for your children to learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship. It is also a great way to give back to your community. You can volunteer to be a guest speaker, business mentor, or Investor Panel judge and help take students’ ideas to the next level. For more information, visit YEA’s website.
YEA is a community
The Young Entrepreneurs Association is a community of high-impact entrepreneurs that provides the holistic guidance needed to grow personally and professionally. Its members come from a variety of industries and provide peer mentorship through an online forum. Members also gain access to exclusive resources and events, such as corporate tours, seminars, social events, and networking opportunities.
YEA offers children the chance to create and sell their own products, such as jewelry, make-and-take crafts, toys, gifts, and special services. They can work alone, with friends, or a team. Kids can even participate as a part of school groups, scouts, or local fundraisers.
The YEA program has been a life-changing experience for the students and their community. It features a diverse group of community volunteers, including parents, educators, mentors, guest lecturers and serial entrepreneurs. The program includes a year-long course that transforms local students into real entrepreneurs. It also culminates in a pitch competition. Winners of this contest can win college scholarships and are invited to compete in the national Saunders Entrepreneurship Competition.
YEA is a network
YEA is a network of young game-changers who are devoted to arts, human rights, environment and cultural expression and want to share their message with their peers, friends and citizens online and offline. They are open to opportunities for education, skills development, travel, advocacy and much more. As YEA Ambassadors, they get VIP invitations to conferences and cultural events, participate in discussion panels with experts from various fields and even go on study trips across the EU and Western Balkans.
During the program, students learn how to start and run their own businesses using a project-based curriculum. They are exposed to a wide range of guest speakers, successful entrepreneurs and business mentors; take exciting field trips to local businesses to gain hands-on experience; meet with investors at a trade show and are recognized at a graduation ceremony.
YEA has built a network of entrepreneurs and is committed to supporting them by providing the resources they need to succeed. It has also partnered with other organizations to promote entrepreneurship as a way of solving America’s youth unemployment crisis.
YEA is a competition
YEA is an entrepreneurship learning competition for high school students around the world. Its goal is to inspire young people to develop impactful business ideas that are both profitable and have the potential to transform the world. It also provides a platform for young entrepreneurs to connect with Silicon Valley mentors and global leaders.
The YEA program helps students learn the process of starting and running real businesses/social movements over the course of an academic year. The curriculum includes developing a business plan, registering with governmental agencies, creating a brand identity and participating in a tradeshow. Students are also expected to design and pitch their business plans to investors for funding.
The YEA committee enhances member benefits for young professional ASHRAE members by implementing decarbonization projects at the chapter and regional level, which are financially supported by Society. These projects support the ASHRAE mission and help prepare the next generation of YEA members to serve as industry leaders.
