The high school juniors (Youth Scholars) and seniors (Junior Leaders) who participate in The American Private Enterprise Youth Program are some of the brightest future leaders Kentucky has. They come together first at a local level, then at a state level, and (for the top 20) at a national level to study how our economy works. They get the opportunity to meet and question local business and professional leaders in their communities and to serve on the board of directors of a corporation or a cooperative and solve problems that real corporations and cooperatives face daily.
Materials You Need
Most of the materials for the local and state programs are now on-line for you to download to your computer or to print out (you will need to have Adobe Acrobat to view them).
