South County EDC is hosting 
the (YEA) program and seeking your Assistance 

We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA) program in South County starting this November. 

The YEA program is a remarkable initiative designed to empower young students and help them navigate the journey of building and opening their very first business. At the heart of this program is a robust curriculum that not only imparts essential entrepreneurial knowledge but also connects our students with influential community business leaders who can guide and inspire them. 

We recognize that you have a keen eye for identifying students with exceptional potential and the drive to succeed. We are seeking your assistance in pinpointing those students who would greatly benefit from this program. Your recommendations are invaluable to us, and we trust that your insights will help us select the most promising young entrepreneurs for this incredible opportunity.
