YEA! Northshore Fund

Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) Northshore is a yearlong program that guides middle and high school students through launching and running their own real businesses or social movements.

YEA! Northshore is open to all students in grades 6-12 attending schools in St. Tammany and Tangipahoa Parish. We are thrilled to be expanding the program to Tangipahoa Parish this year!  While in the Academy, students will receive all the necessary tools to launch their very own real, legal businesses! This includes access to valuable resources like attorneys, accountants, business mentors, and graphic designers; plus, an audience with investors for REAL start-up cash. Students will even have the opportunity to win college scholarships.

Applications for the 2017-2018 YEA! Northshore Program are available below. The deadline to submit an application is September 26, 2017. The YEA! Northshore classes will kick off during the week of October 16, 2017. The weekly classes will be held at Northshore Technical Community College (St. Tammany Residents) and Southeastern Louisiana University (Tangipahoa Residents) with a time to be announced.
