Cultivating Entrepreneurial Spirit

Youth Entrepreneurs is an engaging elective course and alumni program that prepares disadvantaged youth for success in the workplace and in life. We help students find fulfillment through a hands-on learning experience and the creation of their very own business idea, while striving to instill the moral character necessary for our youth to lead lives as thriving, productive citizens.

  • We've divided into regions to better serve our students, staff and supporters. Find out more information about your area.

  • Check out the YE events happening in your local area, or find out how you can partner with us through event sponsorship.

  • We're always looking for volunteers to assist our staff with our many events. Apply by filling out the form on our volunteer page.


To engender self-reliance among youth by introducing, through entrepreneurship, the values and skills necessary for them to lead successful, fulfilling lives as contributing members of society.

YE Regions

YE humbly began in a single classroom at North High School in Wichita, Kansas. Today, our program celebrates more than 25 years of entrepreneurial inspiration and our expansion into nearly 100 schools across the U.S. – but we’re not stopping there.
