Background Statement

Youth Entrepreneurs® (YE) is a hands-on elective high school course and engaging alumni program that fosters values-based thinking, promotes positive character development, and teaches business, economics, and Principled Entrepreneurship™.  What students learn during YE provides a pathway to prosperity, whether that is in higher education, starting a career, or creating a business.


YE began in 1991 as an eight-week program in a single classroom at North High School in Wichita, Kansas. The class eventually expanded into a yearlong, accredited course and now, more than 26 years later, YE has inspired over 21,000 high school students across the nation to greater achievement than they ever thought possible. Until 2016, YE programs were offered in Kansas, Missouri and Georgia. With a growing demand for entrepreneurship and values based education, YE is now taking its unique, hands-on education nationwide, allowing for hundreds – eventually thousands – more students to learn what it means to be an entrepreneur.


An entrepreneurial mindset isn’t just about starting a business. It’s about creating value, making our lives and the lives of those around us better. We set out to ignite a passion for business education and entrepreneurship, to transform students' mindsets and reveal a path to opportunity and fulfillment they never knew existed. YE teaches students, particularly those who live in communities with fewer resources, the skills and knowledge of business ownership and the important human values that form the foundation of fulfillment. 


The YE approach:

  • Empowers students with the value and vision they need to pursue prosperity.
  • Equips students to solve problems ethically and profitably.
  • Cultivates an entrepreneurial mindset.
  • Creates an entrepreneurial movement through education.
Impact Statement

Youth Entrepreneurs (YE) offers a year long elective course in high schools, and provides students and alumni with continued education through YE Academy. The curriculum is designed to improve students’ understanding and pursuit of business, markets and the entrepreneurial mindset that will help them prosper and become contributing members of society.

  • Pursue higher education
  • Become a successful employee or business owner

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

Dear Friends of Youth Entrepreneurs®,

This has been a monumental year for all those connected with Youth Entrepreneurs. Over the past 12 months, we launched a new website, expanded our regions, unified nationally and entered 36 new schools. Our mission has never been more alive.
The knowledge, skills and values taught in YE classrooms are real. They are applicable. They are the foundation on which students will build their future successes. But there is work yet to be done if we are to provide more students with the tools necessary to achieve their dreams.
Building something big doesn't happen in a day. It takes many hands and many hearts, driven together by a single purpose. Thankfully, never have so many supporters stood with our students, ready to help them draw up their plans - to prepare them for their time to build.
Together, we continue to help more students ignite passions, development their innate talents and find the path to fulfillment. And we are honored to stand by your side.
Elizabeth Koch,
Chair of the Board
The YE class is the lifeline of our entrepreneurship program. This full-year elective class is a regular part of the student’s academic day, taught by a local high school teacher which YE provides training to as well as continual professional development opprortunities. YE underscores the importance of core knowledge areas such as writing, mathematics, and public speaking. Some of the elements of the classroom experience are listed below:
  • Students who enroll in a YE class have homework and take tests, but their capstone project is researching and writing a business plan. The business plan contains all elements of an investment-grade business plan that any banker or venture capitalist would require. 
  • Students work one-on-one or in small groups with business leaders from the community who act as volunteer business plan advisors to help them with their ideas and questions as they develop their individual plans.  
  • Student outcomes include a full feasible business plan and soft business skills.

Short-Term Success
Program process is measured by:
  1. Number of students enrolling in the YE class
  2. The students' grade/growth they have made in the YE class
  3. Their participation in the business plan competition. Each student must compete against their classmates. The top winner from each class moves onto the regional competition, and those winner then move to the state and national competitions
  4. We ensure our students are not only learning, but also having fun. We also encourage our students to stay actively engaged with our Alumni Programs after they graduate from the class.
Long-Term Success Youth Entrepreneurs students are taught they can take ownership of their futures and create their own pathways out of poverty.  YE strives to provide youth with the educational opportunities and support systems they need to become knowledgeable about the world in which they live and add value to their communities. Our vision is to develop a passion in all students to strive for success in both the marketplace and life. We encourage our students to reach their full potential. We do this by stimulating economic thinking skills; encouraging creative, intelligent risk-taking; providing practical business experience, and instilling independence and personal responsibility. The result of the YE experience is a more productive member of society who makes their life and the lives of others in our community better.
Program Success Monitored By We have a pre- and post-test. The pre-test gauges their entrepreneurial knowledge before the class begins and post-test shows us what our students learned during the class. New for the 2017-18 school year is the incorporation of an entrepreneurial index score which will utilize the Likert scale to measure change in students' soft skills, business readiness, knowledge of YE's foundational values, etc. from the beginning to the end of the course. We also periodically measure long-term impact of the program by surveying our alumni. The last comprehensive alumni survey was during 2016.
Examples of Program Success
  • 91% of students said that YE improved their understanding of entrepreneurship.
  • 85% of students reported feeling comfortable meeting new people, attending business events, networking, and sharing their ideas with business professionals after attending the class.
  • 29% of alumni reported they have started a business, and 38% of those have hired employees. (Nationally only 0.3% of employed people ages 20-24 run their own incorporated businesses.)
  • 99% of YE alumni reported that they graduated from high school.
  • 80% of alumni reported that they have completed high education.

"Something YE taught me is that although I wasn't born with every resource at my fingertips, I can still achieve my dreams." 

Description Highlights of the YE year are the wholesale trip and market day at each YE high school. Offering a classic lesson in buying at wholesale and selling for retail, this activity is one of the largest recruiters for future YE students. With the activity, each student must create a mini-business plan and bid for venture capital funding ($10-$300) from YE. Students are encouraged to partner with two or three other students in his or her class to create a team. Prior to the field trip, each team decides on an item or items to sell. Most teams select lunch items such as pizza or Mexican food, but others have sold hand-made jewelry, or even taken orders for made-from-scratch pies. Once the teams are ready, they go on their wholesale field trip. The day begins with a visit to a manufacturing business where they are taken on a guided tour of the facility and are exposed to what goes on behind the scenes to produce a product. They then eat lunch at locally owned restaurant where the owner talks about restaurant or franchise "ownership." They end the day at a wholesale club such as Sam's or Costco, where they purchase the supplies needed for the upcoming Market Day. Market Day typically takes place over the lunch hour at each school, and students must effectively market their product so they can pay back their venture capital funds and then keep any profit. An average team profits $100-$600.

Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success This wholesale/retail lesson provides a wealth of knowledge for the students: market research techniques, how to figure pricing, marketing their product, understanding the cost of goods sold, and how to calculate return on investment. YE instructors use this “business for a day” project to build on as the students prepare their in-depth business plans. The culminating project for each YE student is researching and writing a business plan. One of the most important goals of this project is teach our students how to make a profit. The easiest way to show them is through hands on learning. Another goal of this project is to encourage healthy competition among our students. They learn the harder they are willing to work, the bigger profit they can make.
Long-Term Success The long term success would be future enrollment of the class. This is our most popular activity and is our largest recruiter for future enrollment. We also want our students to understand the concepts of different types of business structures and the basics of profit as they enter the workforce.
Program Success Monitored By We survey all of our students at the end of the year to measure their satisfaction and measure of value out of each activity. The most important measure of our success would be how many students make a profit. If YE receives the venture capital back from each of our students after the lesson, the more successful we are at teaching our students the importance of a return on investment. The other evaluative lesson through the classroom setting is how well the students perform in the business plan competition. Each of our sites has their own classroom competition, and the top winner from each school later move on to regional, state and national competitions.
Examples of Program Success

A successful Wholesale Field Trip results in a real time understanding of the manufacturing process, supply chains, cost of goods, etc.  This experience helps students realize the importance of research and educated decision-making when they work to create and execute their business on Market Day.  A successful Market Day results in good revenue achieved by making wise decisions based on market research and demand.  Students learn a great deal these two days and are able to apply this learning in their own individual business plan creation in the second semester.  This year, the average student took home $125 each after Market Day.  This is a great incentive to continue to prosper and learn how to make money on your own without the support of government assistance.  Thus, propelling students out of the poverty cycle.


YE hosts Dare to Dream, an annual one-day educational workshop that brings students together during the fall semester for a day of motivation and business skills development. A national speaker/ entrepreneur provides a keynote speech, and breakouts provide hands-on workshops in financial literacy activities, free-enterprise markets, marketing and branding, structured networking/interpersonal skills and other business skills development.

Program Budget $25,000.00
Category Education, General/Other
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Short-Term Success 90% of students will respond on the post-survey that Dare to Dream provided value for them.
Long-Term Success To inspire 350 students to dream about what's possible for them. In addition, to learn the soft skills of business such as business etiquette at a business luncheon, networking and public speaking, as well as personal finance and budgeting.
Program Success Monitored By We administer a post-survey to all students following the workshop measuring satisfaction and value received.
Examples of Program Success

  • 94% of students responded on the 2015 survey that Dare to Dream created value for them.
  • Two students received scholarships to attend Usher's New Look Camp.
  • 93% of students reported better confidence when using networking skills and table manners. 


Alumni are invited to participate in YE Academy, an ongoing, continued education and application program designed to take students' knowledge and ideas to the next level. YE alumni can participate in local summer internship opportunities. Partnering companies give students specific goal-based projects that involve solving a current pain or opportunity for the partnering organization.

YE Academy also provides a vehicle to provide post-secondary education information, career exploration, deeper financial analysis, a variety of business leadership and management skills, the opportunity to shadow entrepreneurs, pitch to investors, tour businesses and participate in extracurricular courses teaching advanced business and economic skills.

Launched in 2012, YE believes this focus on students who demonstrate interest in taking their future to the next level will create an even greater measurable impact to the community.

Short-Term Success

On a case by case basis, YE determines success based on the individual’s goals and future prospectus. Attending higher education, launching a business or maintaining employment are short-term and long-term successes.

Long-Term Success

As a result of YE Academy, YE alumni will be acutely engaged with the organization, their communities and general decision-making. Alumni are gaining in-depth knowledge in areas like economics, specific business operations and connecting with community leaders in various industries. For alumni participating in YE Academy, YE strives to achieve 100% mind-set transformation. This means alumni have furthered their education, are gainfully employed and adding value to the company for their employer or have successfully launched a legitimate business.

Program Success Monitored By

This program is monitored according to how many alumni participants we have in each area. YE also tracks which events are most helpful and popular so we can fine-tune offerings.

Examples of Program Success

One example of success for the YE Academy program is from a student who attended high school in Kansas City, KS. She aspired to be a first generation college graduate. Upon high school graduation, she was accepted in the business program at UMKC. She quickly realized the difficulties of public transportation from Kansas City, Kansas to UMKC. She has accumulated the maximum YE Academy points and proposed to YE staff that using them toward a vehicle would help her focus on her education rather than the transportation obstacle to get there and back in a reasonable time frame. This student has remained and excelled at UMKC and has stayed connected to YE through continued participation in YE Academy.

CEO Comments YE teaches the art of survival through an entrepreneurial process. The students that have the opportunity to participate in YE will experience success in their personal lives, as entrepreneurs or entrepreneurial employees.

CEO Comments

YE recognizes the need for increased brand recognition and is continually establishing new connections and partnerships to raise awareness about the program and the impact it makes on the community.

Changes to education standards and other regulations continue to push YE to innovate curriculum and provide new methods of delivery. For example, changing food regulations created a need for us to adapt our experiential Market Day activities. We also strive to coordinate our curriculum and the school district core standards by making adjustments in scheduling and overlaying other classes like economics, applied business development or business marketing.

YE spends a substantial amount of resources, both time and human capital, on transportation as many students struggle with finding a reliable source to attend YE learning opportunities occurring outside the class period. YE continually works with students, teachers, our bus company and all YE staff to safely and reliably transport students.

Additionally, YE strives to reach as many students as possible. Growing the number of schools is both challenging and full of exciting possibilities as we work to grow the program across the nation.
