Join the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce for the first of two information sessions all about Macon's Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), which transforms middle and high school students into business owners through weekly entrepreneurship classes and will be offered this fall.
YEA! Macon launched its first year in 2016, and the inaugural program graduated 20 students, from local public, private and home schools, who launched 16 new companies and received $12,000 from Macon Chamber supporters to help start their businesses.
The Macon Chamber is launching the second year of this successful program, thanks to the continuing support of the Bibb County School District, Stetson School of Business & Economics- Mercer University, as well as 16 local sponsors, including the Peyton Anderson Foundation. Classes for YEA! Macon will be held each Tuesday, at the Mercer Innovation Center, from October 2017 through May 2018, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Applications for YEA! Macon will be accepted until August 31, 2017. To learn more about applying or volunteering for the program, please visit: www.bit.ly/yeamacon.
