Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!)

The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a groundbreaking and exciting program that transforms local high school students into confident entrepreneurs, ready to turn their passions into reality. At the end of the academic year-long program, students pitch their business ideas at a local level for an opportunity to compete in the semifinal and final competitions in New York & Washington D.C. This year, the Lyles Center will serve 13 classes from 11 high schools, in 4 different school districts. Approximately 390 students will be participating.
