Embrace your passion. Live your dream. Change the world.
The YEA! Chicago program is about building the skills and confidence for girls to thrive in business and life. The Young Entrepreneurs Academy has developed a program that teaches students how to select, research, vet, develop, and market a business. From idea generation to pitching their businesses for startup investment funds, this six-month course is truly transformative.
As the only all-girls YEA! program in the world, this powerful program is also about how to do business, focusing on the principles and values that go into doing business well -- communication, business etiquette, accountability, integrity, courage, and perseverance among others. Because as we know, becoming an entrepreneur isn't for the faint of heart!
Our six-month after-school program begins in October and ends in March. Classes are held in downtown Chicago on weekday evenings once a week except for holidays and winter break.
