Experience the new activities in our YES StartUp Camp. The camp is an experiential deep dive into creating a microbusiness. In a weeklong experience students study entrepreneurship concepts guiding them to a personalized path to financial freedom. By the end of camp students create a viable business plan. The camp inspires young people and engages them in a real-world entrepreneurial experience. Students create their own summer jobs as the camp culminates in the creation of an actual business based on a useful application of a student’s passion and skills. Just added- We have added a virtual option to the camp, recently tested with a group of high school students at Burke High School. Students unanimously gave the camp 5 stars and said they would highly reccomend it to their friends.

“A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.”                                      ~Mark Twain
Mark Twain provides a perfect metaphor for how we and our students learn best. Though a violent cat scratch is not advised, it illustrates a point.  A student absorbs information most effectively when they are actively involved in the learning.  In fact, a student actively involved in experiential entrepreneurial education is creating a way to shape their own future.   YEScarolina curriculum, training, competitions and camps provide teachers and youth workers effective ways to facilitate those experiences that build hope for future prosperity based on what a student loves.
