Ahwatukee Chamber Foundation to Pilot YEA! Program This Fall
The Ahwatukee Chamber Community Foundation recently announced that it will be piloting an entrepreneurial program for middle and high school students this fall.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, the foundation has partnered with Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), which is a cutting-edge program that takes students 11 to 18 through the process of starting and launching a real business or social movement. It’s an intensive program that lasts the entire school year, and the only pre-college program developed by an entrepreneur, at a university, with the support of the Kauffman Foundation and United States Chamber of Commerce.
“We are so thrilled to be the next community in the nation to adopt the Young Entrepreneurs Academy,” Joseph Ortiz, community foundation board chair, told the publication. “This program will enhance business education for our students, and provide a unique, challenging, and fulfilling experience for all participants.”
