Young Entrepreneurs Across America is a learning organization. Each day brings a new challenge and another lesson. We provide personal growth and unlimited career opportunities within Young Entrepreneurs Across America for our graduates.
YEAA is a program designed to help teach young students how to run a small business. As a student in our program, you will develop communication and business skills through a summer of REAL BUSINESS WORLD EXPERIENCE. These skills will make you more attractive to full-time employers upon graduation, and better prepare you for the real world that awaits.
GOAL: PROVIDE DAILY LEARNING FROM ACTUAL EXPERIENCE. PROVIDE YOU WITH THE ABILITY AND RESOURCES TO TELL AN INCREDIBLE STORY TO ANY FUTURE EMPLOYER THAT WILL SET YOU APART FROM YOUR PEERS.
The core of the program is development through entrepreneurialism. We provide significant training and support, but it will be up to the manager to make tough decisions, such as what to do with an employee who shows up late to work. Business courses cannot provide letters of recommendation from satisfied clients, or develop subordinates into promotions, or earn real profits. We provide this experience by putting managers in a position of responsibility. We develop entrepreneurs by putting students in the position of having to make real, tough decisions, and allowing them to reap the rewards and learn from their mistakes. This is why our program is so special and why full-time employers are so attracted to these exceptional students: individuals that are not afraid to take on the ultimate development opportunity even though it requires significant commitment and maturity.
