YEScarolina Announces Online Teacher Entrepreneurship Training with Giveaway

YEScarolina’s curriculum is now available for teachers online, expanding the organization’s potential impact on South Carolina’s young people and empowering them through entrepreneurship.




YEScarolina certifies South Carolina private and public school educators of grades 6-12 to teach Entrepreneurship. Within the past year, the organization has rolled out a brand new curriculum that is created by teachers for teachers; the course taught to students to compete in YEScarolina’s annual State Business Plan Competition. Along with the updates, YEScarolina has also made this course available online through their website, for eligible educators to complete at their convenience.

“This new entrepreneurship curriculum is available to career and technology education teachers through YEScarolina’s website and is able to spread its impact further across the state, including hard to reach areas across South Carolina.” says Eva Rutiri, President of Programs. “We are excited to deliver the YEScarolina Entrepreneurship Online Teacher Training Program and the new experiential curriculum with hands-on activities and lesson plans that are sure to motivate and engage the learner. It is a curriculum designed using YEScarolina’s online learning platform to strategically give the teacher-learner all the tools to successfully complete a step-by-step business plan with their students, and prepare them for in-class and state business plan competitions.”
This opportunity allows certified entrepreneurship teachers to re-certify themselves without traveling to Charleston. This online learning platform will also be available to school counselors, librarians, after-school program youth directors, and local organization leaders impacting youth to extend Entrepreneurship programs beyond the classroom.
The course costs $235 and is available for completion within a 52 week period.
Once the course is completed, teachers will be certified with any high school certification to teach Entrepreneurship, Course Code 5400, with the Required Credential for Professional Staff Members in the Instructional Programs of South Carolina’s Public Schools.
This 26-hour online intensive teacher training program focuses on the core elements of experiential education and provides tools and methodology for teaching students the principles of entrepreneurship. Materials provided include downloadable experiential lesson plans, standards alignment with lessons and textbook, business plan template, instructions and examples for participation in the Business Plan Competition, and access to the YEScarolina teacher community.




Through August 19, 2018, teachers in South Carolina can enter for a chance to take the Training Program and have the $235 fee waived.

The winner will be able to take the course at their convenience. Entrants are also eligible to win other prizes, like $50 Visa Gift Cards to help with school supplies for the upcoming school year and sets of 5 Inspirational Posters for the classroom. Winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries and notified within 10 days after the giveaway period closes.
