Summer Camp For Girls
What if you could spend an entire month of your summer learning to make a huge difference in the world, while also meeting amazing like-minded friends, finding your voice, and having a ridiculously fun time all at once? Now more than ever the younger generation is speaking up, speaking out and making a stand for what they believe in. By enrolling your daughter in the YESS Entrepreneurship Academy by Girls Inc. you will be giving them the gift of confidence, communication, and relationship skills.

What Will My Daughter Gain At YESS Entrepreneurship Academy?
The YESS (Youth Empowerment and Self Sufficiency) program is the premier place for girls to learn leadership, economic literacy, and business skills by creating their own mini-society and opening up their own businesses. Girls also gain exposure to a University setting as Chapman University’s Argyros School of Business and Economics hosts the program. The program will run within the school of business at the Leatherby Center for Entrepreneurship, providing girls the chance to work in an interactive environment with student entrepreneurs!

The YESS Entrepreneurship Academy is open to current 3rd – 5th grade girls.
