YE Academy Points – Where Participation = Capital $$

The YE Academy point system rewards YE students and alumni for staying involved in the program and carrying out the YE mission. It’s really simple. All alumni will earn points for participating in YE events outside the classroom that can later be translated into capital grant funding. That’s right, the more involved you are, the more money you’ll earn to put toward your business or higher education!

YE Academy Point Values

100 Points = $100
200 Points = $400

How do I earn points?
