Young Entrepreneurs Academy

Mohawk Valley Community College is proud to offer a new, groundbreaking and fun enrichment program to our most talented, dynamic, and driven students.  The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a 26-week program that takes motivated middle and high school students through the real processes of launching and running their own real businesses in a fun, exciting, projects-based approach.  Complete with dynamic guest speakers from the business community and trips to local companies, students develop professional skills, launch their own real, legal business, and may participate in a national scholarship competition.
