Youth Sparks Academy is a program dedicated to helping youth between the ages of 8-15 years old learn how to start and run a successful business as well as financial literacy and leadership skills. This is an 9 week program that will be taught on Saturdays. The class starts at 10am to 2pm. Classes will be broken down by age group and the time will be set accordingly between the above hours. Each child will graduate as a business owner at the end of the class.
The YSA program runs from June to December in intervals of 9 week sessions. For each session we service 25 students. Youth Sparks Academy is headquartered at The Cornerstone located at 279 W. Crogan St. in Lawrenceville. The Cornerstone is a beautiful state of the art co-working space located downtown Lawrenceville. Students are taught by Dominique Hagler and 20 year entrepreneur veteran Audrey Kearney, but they will also work with guest lecturers and other successful entrepreneurs. Special guest entrepreneurs will be invited to talk to the class about their business and how they got started. At the end of the program we will be having a graduation and each student that successfully complete the program will have an opportunity to mastermind with their peers once a month at The Cornerstone. Our website has a student forum so that the students can post questions and news about their business to get help from their peers.
The deadline for registration is March 8, 2019.
