Last year and years past you helped the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce with successful auctions which have supported programs that are vital to our business community. Thank you for helping us raise those funds! We have two online auctions to fund our Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) and ask you to please help us meet our goal for 2015.
YEA! is a non-profit program designed to inspire middle and high school aged students in Beaverton to become successful contributors to the local community and economy by bringing their innovative business ideas to life. The academy is a year long program that utilizes inspiring speakers, facility tours, relevant seminars, and mentors to guide the participating youth toward their fully functional business venture.
As of 2013, YEA! has graduated 1,394 students who have started over 1,000 businesses and social movements. YEA! graduates started as students and left the program as CEO’s of their own Companies! The Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to be the first and only Chamber in Oregon offering this program.
