Program Seeks Young Evanston Entrepreneurs

High school students in Evanston can get paid while they learn about business. The Youth Entrepreneurship Summer or YES! Camp, which began last summer as a pilot program for 20 youth, is coming back to Evanston this summer.

At YES! Camp, youth find out what it takes to start and develop a business. Participants learn from top business professionals and entrepreneurs how they turned their ideas into successful businesses. Then the work on their own business plans. At the end of the summer, the students present their business ideas in front of a panel of judges with the chance to win prizes. They even get paid a weekly stipend based on their active participation in the program.

The camp is based on recent studies that show that entrepreneurship education is highly effective in improving academic and career outcomes for youth. The camp runs from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. daily from June 19 to July 26 at ETHS, 1600 Dodge Ave. The camp is sponsored by Youth Organizations Umbrella.

Program applications are on online and due by May 24.
