WE ARE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR YEA – 2018!
Cohort 10 of YEA begins in March 2018 and ends in June 2018
Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA) was designed to increase the number of youth who can develop their own economic capacities to succeed through personal finance and exploration into the world of entrepreneurship, develop a continuous reservoir of prospective young entrepreneurs, provide scholarships and equip future business leaders.
The Academy is structured to provide participants the theoretical and practical tools necessary to manage and build their personal financial portfolios to be successful in business.
Eight (8) four hour sessions are conducted. The program will take place 9am-1pm two Saturdays per month beginning March 2018 and end in June 2018, unless otherwise stated.
The sessions will include instruction, self-assessment, individual and group exercises, lectures, homework, field trips and videos.
Workbooks are distributed at the beginning of the training and trainers disseminate a variety of materials at each session (exercises, reference materials, etc.)
The program is paid for by generous grants from Wells Fargo Bank, PG&E, SMUD, UC Davis Health System and Sacramento City College. Some financial responsibility may be required for field trips.
