Whether you are a CEO, serial entrepreneur, or a business professional, your years of experience can inform and challenge YE students.
A mentor can make a huge difference in motivating a student to be successful. As a Business Plan Advisor (BPA), you’ll work directly with YE students during regular class time on multiple occasions to build rapport and track students’ progress. You can help shape the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs.
Orientation is provided by YE teachers and staff to answer all of your questions. The time commitment can be modified to fit your schedule and desire to help. However, it is requested that YE BPAs complete a minimum of four 50-90 minute classroom sessions, beginning in October and running through March. To comply with the volunteer standards of YE partner school districts, you will be required to complete a non-financial background check.

To be considered for acceptance as a Business Plan Advisor, I acknowledge that I must complete the Business Plan Advisor application, online background check, and complete the BPA orientation.

Additionally, I give YE permission to include me in email correspondence including but not limited to monthly email updates about the organization and its constituent programs.
