How Business Professionals Can Get Involved in YEA!

Through their interactions with business professionals during the year, YEA! students gain some of the most important knowledge and experience they need to succeed. Local professionals volunteer their time and expertise as guest speakers, mentors, investors, graphic designers, field trip hosts, business plan reviewers, and much more. The time YEA! students spend with adults who encourage their futures is invaluable, and participants often report getting even more out of their participation than they put in to it!

If you are interested in becoming involved with YEA! as a guest speaker, field trip host, or volunteer, contact Trina McLaughlin, Program Manager, at (434) 836-6990 or email tmclaughlin@dpchamber.org.
