Young Entrepreneurs Academy! (YEA!)
Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) transforms students into real, confident entrepreneurs. Through the year-long program, Webster CSD high school students generate business ideas, conduct market research, write business plans, pitch to a panel of investors, and launch their very own companies.
On Thursday, March 24, Webster Schroeder and Webster Thomas high school students participating in our YEA! program will pitch their ideas to local investors. Thank you to this year's investors! Please support these local businesses and organizations (linked below) just as they support our students, and watch the Investment Panel livestream below.
The Webster YEA! students receiving the largest investment at this year's Investor's Panel will advance to the finals of the YEA! Saunders Scholars Bright Ideas college scholarship competition to be held virtually on June 4. There they will vie for one of three scholarship awards ranging from $20,000 to $30,000 to Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and an opportunity to display their product or service at Imagine RIT: Innovation Creativity Festival.
Webster CSD has been a proud participant in the YEA! since 2009.
