YEM Registration (2018)
In the Spring of 2017, over 50 students in grades 4-12 participated in Ithaca's first Youth Entrepreneurship Market (YEM). In the expanded 2018 program, students will learn business startup basics from local entrepreneurs and coaches. Participants will learn what it takes to launch an idea into a business, and then bring the concept to life at several community youth markets in the summer of 2018.
