Yea! calling all young entrepreneurs

Applications for the 2016-2017 class of the Aiken Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) are now being accepted. The class is open to public, charter, private and home school students in grades 6-12. While in the Academy, students will receive all the necessary tools to launch their very own real, legal businesses. This includes access to valuable resources like attorneys, accountants, business mentors and marketing firms. The students pitch to a group of investors for real startup cash – Aiken’s own Shark Tank. Classes meet for three hours after school once a week from October through May at USCA.

The YEA! application is available online at
