Don’t you wish adults would listen to your ideas and let you try them out?
Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t, but it is in the journey that brings the richest learning. You can change what didn’t work and try again. This is what entrepreneurialism is all about. YEA Corps does not believe that mistakes are failure, but often the best learning tool. So lets give it a try, and have fun!
Would you like to learn how to enterprise your idea and bring it to life?
All of our projects train and teach you entreprenuerial skills and practices which will help you be successful and prepared for any job you seek.
Get a group of friends, neighbors, or friends of friends and YEA Corps will help you put your idea into action. Won’t it be great to produce something positive while being productive?
You could have a great impact in your neighborhood, community, and/or school through these projects while learning how to enterprise them.
We want you and your project ideas!
If you are between the ages 13 - 18 and have an idea to put into action, you first need to find an adult Project Sponsor who supports your idea and will work with you and YEA Corps for the duration of the project as a liaison. The adult can be a teacher, youth leader, club leader, coach, or parent, as examples. If you are already in an organized youth group or activity we will work with your organizaton as well. Then contact YEA Corps and we will provide the training, framework, materials, community connections, and partners you need to your implement your idea.
YEA Corps will also work with you to implement one of our past or current projects with your group. Check out the Projects page to see what ideas are in motion. Currently YEA Corps is focused on GREEN projects.
