Westfield Sponsors Entrepreneur Program for High School Students

1 Comment(s) Posted by Westfield Insurance

The Medina Chamber of Commerce is the first in Ohio to launch a new entrepreneur program for high school students called Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!). Medina high school students can submit their applications and business ideas until Oct. 7, 2011. From there, 24 students will be chosen for the program.

YEA! is a nationwide program managed by U.S. chambers of commerce, and takes students on the journey of creating, growing and operating a new business through a series of after school classes, field trips and events. The program is $195 per student, and students can also apply for additional financial assistance in the form of scholarships.

Westfield Insurance is the primary sponsor of YEA! in Medina, donating $5,000 to the program. 75 other chambers in the U.S. plan to jumpstart the program this year.
