Founded in 1991 by the Charles Koch Foundation, Youth Entrepreneurs (formerly Youth Entrepreneurs Kansas) started as an eight-week program at Wichita High School North. It eventually expanded to an entire school-year course. In 1997, the organization converted from a private, not-for-profit foundation to a 501© (3). After expanding into Missouri schools and changing its name to Youth Entrepreneurs, the organization has grown to serve more than 1,400 students across the nation. The Youth Entrepreneurs course is open to all high school students, but is targeted toward at-risk youth.
