Young Entrepreneurs Academy

February, 2022

The Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce is continuing the innovative Young Entrepreneurs Academy with programming beginning in February, 2022.

The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a groundbreaking and exciting afterschool program that transforms local middle and high school students into real, confident entrepreneurs. Through this program, students in grades 7 - 12 work closely with local business leaders to cultivate and research business ideas, write business plans, pitch to a panel of investors, obtain funding, develop their brand, and launch their business or social movement. They may also compete for significant college scholarships. By learning entrepreneurial skills before they exit high school, the students develop not only the business and social skills so often attributed to entrepreneurship, but the mindset that will help them achieve success with, and bring innovation to, all their future endeavors.
