Danville, VA (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
The Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that EcomNets is a Presenting Partner of this year’s Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA). YEA is an innovative program that transforms local middle and high school students into real entrepreneurial successes.
YEA, an after-school program that meets weekly at Danville Community College, is a groundbreaking program that takes students between the ages of 11 and 18 through the process of starting and launching a real business or social movement over the course of an academic year. By the end of the class, students own and operate fully-formed and functioning businesses, which may be carried on after their graduation from the program. YEA! aims to teach students at an early age how to make a job, not just take a job. It is the ONLY pre-college program developed by an entrepreneur, at a university, with support from a major entrepreneurial foundation, the Kauffman Foundation, and the United States Chamber of Commerce.
