After-school entrepreneurship program kicks off at Chaney High School

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A ten-week after-school program for entrepreneurship kicks off at Chaney High School.

According to a release, The Young Philanthropist Fund, a component of the CFMV presented a check Friday to Junior Achievement of Mahoning Valley (JAMV) for a new entrepreneurial program at Chaney High School.

This new program is a partnership with the Youngstown Business Incubator (YBI).

JAMV and YBI will implement "Youngstown Code Academy," a ten week after-school program that introduces high school students to computer coding and starting a business.

Friday, a student/parent orientation was held at the Chaney STEM/VPA Campus for twelve students who were chosen to participate in the "Youngstown Code Academy", a new collaborative project between Chaney STEM, Junior Achievement, and the Youngstown Business Incubator.

Although 30 STEM students who are currently enrolled in the information technology and engineering programs are eligible to apply to the project, limited space will allow only twelve students to participate. 

Once chosen, students will participate in numerous after-school meetings geared towards improving their problem-solving abilities, critical thinking, decision-making, reasoning and analysis capabilities, and their study skills through better time management.

Students will also have the opportunity to explore career options through mentoring experiences and learning to be creative and innovative in computer programming and entrepreneurial opportunities.

For example, they will learn how to create their own "app".
