Youth Entrepreneur Program

Are you interested in business? Do you want to start your own company?

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.

To guide our future businessmen and women in the right direction, The City of Temecula will be hosting this summer’s Youth Entrepreneur Summer Program 2020 for high school students at the Temecula Valley Entrepreneur’s Exchange.  

This six day 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.

Youth Entrepreneur Program


This program empowers the youth to create their own business. Learning the core concepts of business design and development will give the youth knowledge and hands-on experience with a field directly related to the financial growth and sustentation of the City of Temecula’s economy, increasing the economic and overall business life around Temecula. 

If you’re an aspiring young entrepreneur or you’re simply interested in learning more about the world of business, then come join us! You’ll receive hands-on experience and learn from entrepreneurial guest speakers. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your own mock business and learn about:

  • Marketing 
  • Business Planning 
  • Market research 
  • Budgeting 
  • Business Pitching 
  • Business Law 

Towards the end of the program, we will be hosting a Business Pitch Competition where groups present their pitch to a panel of investors and the winners will receive prizes!  

By investing in our youth, Youth Entrepreneur Program students will augment their potential for becoming significant contributors to the local, statewide, and national economy, creating new jobs and becoming forces of innovation and economic growth. With hands-on learning and engaging guest speakers, the Youth Entrepreneur Program will be a memorable way to spend your summer!
