Become a Champion for Young Entrepreneurs!

Champions: A volunteer who shows up to our 4 in-person sessions (YES Connect) leading up to the Showcase.  No need to be an expert or even experienced in business. We need Champions who will listen to, and give constructive feedback to our Young Entrepreneurs as they engage in the process of starting a business. 

        Time Requirement: 2 hours one night per week (usually Thursdays) for the four weeks preceding the Showcase. Dinner is provided. 

Experts: Don't worry you don't need to be a world renowned business mogul to qualify! Our students need practical thinkers who have some experience in the world of business.  Especially in the areas of Writing, Finance, Legal, Customer Service and Marketing. If you can offer constructive feedback to students as they present their ideas we would love to have you join us for two of our 4 YES Connect events where students present their business plans and ask questions. 


        Time Requirement: Attend two, two-hour sessions (usually Thursday evenings) on the topic of your expertise/experience. Dinner is provided. 



We need Business Leaders, and Cheerleaders for our Young Entrepreneurs! 

We need YOU ! Are you a business leader? A business expert? Or just someone looking to encourage and invest in the youth of Springfield? 


Thank you to our 2023 Showcase sponsors!
