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 five 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 2015 is our ninth year and we welcomed 45 students. Our staff & volunteers include some of our 273 Alumni (from 2007–2014), 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.
We are sponsored by the Innovative Sustainability & Social Entrepreneurship Initiative of the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in the Warrington College of Business Administration at the University of Florida.
