Summer Internship

Youth Entrepreneurs Program

YEP KC is an 8-week summer internship program for HS students interested in entrepreneurship. We select a small cohort of students to intern at high-growth companies in KC, and in return, students gain real-world experience and great connections as they start the beginning of their professional career. We also help fund their college tuition with $4,000 salary and a $5,000 college scholarship upon successful completion of the program. Currently, we are partnering with 6-8 high growth companies, so there will be approx. 2-3 students at each company. Students have the option to intern for either one 4 week session or two 4 week sessions - We ask that students participate in only one 4-week session if they will be missing more than 3 days for vacation, etc. during a 4 week period.
