YEP is open to all Poughkeepsie High School 9th - 12th grade students.
FIND OUT WHAT IT TAKES TO CREATE YOUR OWN BUSINESS!
We are now accepting applications for Poughkeepsie High School students who are entering grades 9 – 12 to be a part of our Youth Entrepreneur Program. With only limited slots available, 30 selected students will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship by creating their very own company and working within teams to develop and sell a unique product. YEP will focus on three areas over the course of the program:
This 4-month program will challenge students to create and design their very own company product and work with their team to sustain their business by marketing, sales, and developing and maintaining relationships with key stakeholders.
Students will serve in various management positions within the company and work as a team to run their business throughout the program.
Alongside business professionals, students will learn techniques to effectively manage business costs and increase revenue.
YEP is also seeking local entrepreneurs and business professionals who are interested in sharing their experience and inspiring our next generation of community leaders! Apply to be a Volunteer Mentor today.
