Deadline Extended for Young Entrepreneurial Scholars (YES) Week Applications

The deadline for applications for the 2nd Annual Young Entrepreneurial Scholars Week – an intensive summer experience to to encourage budding entrepreneurs – has been extended to Friday, June 15.

YES Week offers a limited number of incoming high school sophomores, juniors and seniors the chance to understand entrepreneurship as a career option, generate business ideas, meet and learn from successful business professionals and develop leadership abilities and skills necessary for business success.

The initiative, launched by the Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce and the Northern Arizona Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, will be held from July 23-27 this year.

An atmosphere of constant creativity helps students generate business ideas and develop them into viable business plans. As part of YES! Week, business professionals and leaders will be volunteering their time to speak and interact with the participants by sharing their own career and professional experiences.

“The opportunity to meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs will help the students develop their critical thinking, life skills and leadership abilities,” said Chamber President / CEO Julie Pastrick. “We expect that these interactions will engage the students and help shed light on potential new businesses and future career goals.”
