YEA! Looking for Volunteer Business Mentors

By greendalechamber, Nov 20 2015 11:12PM

With help from the Greendale Chamber of Commerce, YEA! (Young Entrepreneurs Academy) Greendale has developed an exciting opportunity for students and area business leaders.


YEA! Greendale is in search of 8 committed business leaders to act as a business mentor to Greendale High School students who are trying to develop a business plan. Coaching, guidance, and direction to a business enterprise will be part of this mentoring experience and will be conducted at Greendale High School. Your commitment will have a significant impact on the students’ ability to launch and run their own REAL, albeit modest, business or nonprofit organizations.


YEA! Business Mentors commit to seven classroom visits , taking place from January 7 through February 18, 2016, from 5:30 p.m to 7 p.m. and continued out-of-class support through email and phone through March 17. You’ll have the opportunity to assist your student or group in the process of developing and writing a business plan and creating an investor presentation used to request funding. YEA! also encourages you to share your business experiences with the groups over the course of your meetings. Previous students have indicated that hearing firsthand accounts from members of the business community make a significant impact on what they are learning.


As we move forward into the 2015-16 academic year of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, they anticipate needing mentors to work with the students during class sessions. The YEA! Instructor will be providing instruction and guidance each class period before YEA! Business Mentors arrive to work with their individual student groups.


For more information about this exciting and rewarding opportunity, please contact Kitty Goyette; who serves as the YEA! Greendale Participant Program Manager at (414) 416-6215, or by email at kitty.goyette@greendale.k12.wi.us
