Youth Entrepreneur Program

2022 YEP - Flyer - Updated

The Youth Entrepreneur Program is an opportunity for high school students to learn the process of starting, maintaining, and growing a small business. The program is in person and based out of the City of Temecula’s TVE2 Building.

Of the many young individuals who wish to start their own company or business, few understand where to begin. The daunting task of developing a business, seeking investors, and supporting it through its crucial first few years of needed expansion is not regularly considered and taught to the emerging generation who research shows are increasingly more likely to want to run and develop their own businesses.

This program spans two weeks and will introduce you to the many different aspects of starting a business. Throughout the program, you’ll be exposed to the different methods of planning a business, as well as how to market and incorporate your company.
