Calling All Young Entrepreneurs!!

Do you know a young individual wanting to start their own small business? or perhaps they already have and need help with their growth? 

Lawn service, odd-jobs, babysitting, and pet care are just some examples of potential businesses that could be started. We want you to have no limitations & want to hear YOUR ideas, to support you in pursuing your dream. All students between 8-18 years old with a business or business idea qualify to enter the program 

Overcoming the challenges of business

Building a startup into a full-fledged business is not as easy as it looks; and that too at a young age. There are many challenges and rejections in the path of the business sector. Being a young entrepreneur is challenging and we want to help.

We help fund and mentor your business idea

If you are ages 8-18 we’d like to help you pursue your dream this summer by saying YES!  Our Young Entrepreneur Scholarship (YES!) program awards up to $2,000.00.
