YEA promises to be an invaluable opportunity for North business students


Ashley Enright (pictured middle), from the Young Entrepreneur’s Academy (YEA), spoke with business students at North High recently about the many benefits our students receive through participating in this national program.

Enright is a Camelback and YEA alumna who is now a student at ASU. North business teacher, Renata Geurtz, said Enright’s ability to speak from personal experience inspired over 30 students begin working on the application process.

YEA is a year-long program for students in grades six through twelve that guides students through the process of designing business ideas, conducting market research, writing business plans, pitching to a panel of investors, and launching their very own companies.
