Description

An internship with the Young Entrepreneurs Academy is unlike any other you’ve had. You’ll be challenged. You’ll be inspired. You’ll be proud. And you’ll be a part of something big.
At the Ahwatukee Chamber Community Foundation’s Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), college interns are an important part of the team. You’ll be working on critical projects that will help to further YEA!’s and the chamber’s mission and vision, as well as the expansion of both organizations. Better yet, you’ll be that much closer to landing a full-time after graduation! Whether you’re helping to land a story in a national media outlet, or interacting directly with business and community leaders, your experience as a YEA! intern will arm you with valuable real-world experiences, as well the opportunity to hone and cultivate areas of interest or passion and learn new skills.
YEA! is a groundbreaking and exciting afterschool program that transforms middle and high school students into real, confident entrepreneurs. Through the year-long program, students in grades 6-12 generate business ideas, conduct market research, write business plans, pitch to a panel of investors, and launch their very own REAL companies.
YEA! was developed in 2004 at the University of Rochester with support from the Kauffman Foundation. Today, the Academy can be found in communities nationwide.
Students receive a number of unique benefits from their participation, including a wonderful resume experience, and a way to get involved and connected in the community with local business, school, and community leaders while
empowering local students.
