The Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce and Lakeville Area School District 194 are excited to announce the first Young Entrepreneurs Academy in the state of Minnesota!

YEA! is a groundbreaking program that will take Lakeville students (grades 6 – 8) through the process of starting a launching a real business or social movement over the course of an academic year. By the end of the class, students own and operate fully-formed and functioning businesses, which may be carried after their graduation from the program. YEA! aims at teaching students at an early age how to make a job, not just take a job.
