The UF Young Entrepreneurs for Leadership & Sustainability summer program gives college bound high school students the opportunity to live, work, eat, and play on the campus of the University of Florida for four weeks each summer while learning about entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship, being inspired to solve social problems, and practicing sustainability. We empower students to become leaders and changemakers.
Summer 2016 is our 10th year and we welcome 56 students to campus. Our staff & volunteers include some of our 374 Alumni (from 2007–2016), many of whom are now undergraduates studying at UF and other selective colleges & universities. This summer, together, we will change the world (or at least have an amazing time learning how to do so).
Due to the generosity of our many supporters and friends, we are able to offer scholarships to students who would otherwise be unable to afford this life-changing experience.
