The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is offering a nine-month entrepreneurship training program for high school students to develop business ideas.
The Young Entrepreneurs Academy, developed by the University of Rochester and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, will begin in October and conclude in May, with classes meeting 4:30-7:30 p.m. every Tuesday, except during school breaks and holidays, at the Willow International Community College Center in northeast Fresno. Tuition for the program is $395 per student.
Instructors and guest speakers guide students through developing a business idea and business plan and how to present themselves professionally. The class culminates with investor presentations to business leaders who may donate funds to help students launch their businesses.
