News & Events
Entrepreneurship is a promising pathway for Ohio’s students and is key to job creation across the state.
The Young Entrepreneurs Consortium is focused on just that—increasing student achievement by building a robust education-to-employment model.
YEC districts and partners are infusing real-life experiences and collaboration into curriculum; working together to provide students with work-based learning opportunities; providing personalized counseling to students to help them plan and prepare for post-secondary experiences; and offering a sample sequence of coursework in grades 6–14 for five business and technical certifications.
Explore the Consortium’s work and impact to date and what the YEC is doing to link students’ learning, aspirations, and interests to college and career preparation.
