LUBBOCK, Texas -

Organizers for the Young Entrepreneurs Academy prepare to accept the next class.

This 30 week program guides middle and high-schoolers through launching and running their own businesses or social movements. The information session delved into the structure, curriculum, and application process, as well as how business leaders can get involved as mentors.

"Students do not have to have an idea or an invention or anything like that to get into the program -- we can help them come up with a business idea. If they want to be their own boss, want to be their own CEO, I would encourage them to look into it," Norma Ritz Johnson, Lubbock Chamber of Commerce member said.

The YEA runs through most of the school year from late October through May and meet three hours a week. The final deadline is July 30th.
