YEM Registration (2021)
INSPIRE • EMPOWER • DISCOVER
Inspiring entrepreneurial thinking through hands-on learning and connections to community, helping students realize the power of their ideas and their voices.
Since 2017, more than 200 students in grades 4-12 have participated in Ithaca's Youth Entrepreneurship Market (YEM). During the program, students learn business startup basics from local entrepreneurs and coaches. Participants experience what it takes to develop an idea into a business, bringing the concept to life at several community youth markets throughout the year. If outdoor markets aren't available in 2021, we will shift to an online platform.
WS#1 Idea Generation & Social Impact - Date/Time/Location TBD
WS#2 Business Planning - Date/Time/Location TBD
WS#3 Budgeting & Financial Planning - Date/Time/Location TBD
WS#4 Marketing & Sharing Your Story - Date/Time/Location TBD
WS#5 Financial Literacy & Future Planning - Date/Time/Location TBD
Similar to 2017, 2018, and 2019, our goal is to host 4 outdoor markets in May, June, July, and August, and we will continue to check with local health officials to plan for the safety of all participants and consumers. If the local health department advises against outdoor markets/gatherings, we will develop an (or use an existing) online marketplace for students to launch their businesses.
TBD pending safety guidance from local health officials.
$50 - $100 (sliding scale) or email us to apply for a scholarship.
