YEA!
BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR THROUGH THE YEA! JUNIOR HIGH PROGRAM 

District 15 junior high school students have the unique opportunity to start and launch their own businesses by participating in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), sponsored by the Palatine Chamber of Commerce.

Started at the University of Rochester in 2004, YEA! began as a weekly class, taught on the university campus. YEA! has since expanded to other colleges, chambers of commerce, junior high and high schools. 

Over the course of the year, D15 junior high students will brainstorm ideas, write business plans, pitch their plans to a group of investors, obtain funding, launch their enterprise and actually sell their products or services.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-19 YEA! after-school class. Click here to download and complete an application. Contact Steven Gaus with the Palatine Chamber of Commerce with any additional questions.
