We are looking for High School students: Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors to join the Junior Entrepreneurs of Minnesota (jEM) Program! jEM is a four-week long summer program designed to introduce high school students to the basics of entrepreneurship and leadership in a fun, engaged, hands-on learning environment. The participants will work on two ongoing projects: a presentation of a team-based business pitch, that showcases their new entrepreneurial ideas, and a service leadership project located in Minneapolis. The program aims to build students' critical thinking and business acumen, and enhance their confidence and sense of social responsibility.
While jEM is a competitive program, any student who attends high school in the Twin Cities is welcome and encouraged to apply. jEM is a truly unique opportunity for the most motivated and passionate young entrepreneurs in Minnesota to further develop both their professional and personal skills. Program application and participation are 100% free (except transportation to the program)!
