According to the National Youth Employment Coalition, youth employment is at a 60-year low. While some kids vie for summer jobs, Building Young Entrepreneurs will put them to work for themselves.
Building Young Entrepreneurs (BYE) is a program for middle school students created to recruit and train the next generation of entrepreneurs. During the 8-week camp, students will learn to develop a real business, raise start-up funds, and pitch their idea at the end of the summer. The curriculum includes emphasis on writing, networking, and presentation skills. Camp goers will see real examples of entrepreneurs their age running successful businesses.
