Youth About Business gives high school students from all backgrounds exposure to the world of business through a stimulating and interactive program. Students who participate in YAB’s programs boast a 98 percent high school graduation rate with many pursuing degrees at two- and four-year colleges, compared to a rate of 68 percent in some areas of the country.
The YAB Summer Business Camp Program is YAB’s cornerstone program. Here students learn about the world of high-level corporate finance through our merger and acquisition simulation. Students are advised by attorneys, accountants, investment bankers and many other executives to understand the mechanics of these business transactions. Our “summer intensive” camps serve as the entry point into the year round Youth About Business Leadership Development Program curriculum. The summer culminates with the Wall Street Conference for Teens in one of the most exciting financial districts in America.
The YAB Entrepreneurial Training Program teaches students the mechanics of how to successfully run a business. The program gives students a theoretical view of business through our established curriculum. Students then have the opportunity to apply the knowledge by actually participating in the management of small business operatives that we refer to as our Training Centers. This is available only in Southeast Market.
