Who is eligible to take the class?
Any public or private school teacher or school counseling personnel. We also welcome after-school program youth directors, as well as any organization leaders impacting youth.
Why is there a deposit if the class is free?
YEScarolina requires a deposit of $100 to reserve your seat in the class. The full deposit will be returned to you on the first day of training, unless you do not show up for class. Please mail your deposit to 171 Church St., Suite 212, Charleston, SC 29401.
How do I apply?
Fill out the online training application here and mail deposit to YEScarolina 171 Church St., Suite 212, Charleston, SC 29401.
How do I know if I have received the scholarship to attend the training session?
You will receive an email from YEScarolina upon receipt of your application indicating if you have been admitted, are on a waiting list, or the class has been filled. Please be sure to include a working email address on your application.
What do I need to bring to the class?
Teachers are highly recommended to bring a personal laptop or tablet. There is a heavy amount of individual work time and research which requires the computer. Please contact YEScarolina if this is an issue.
What if I am teaching an unrelated subject?
The YEScarolina curriculum is easily integrated into any subject matter. This curriculum can be used as a stand-alone class or as a supplement to your existing curriculum. However, please note that this particular training gives top priority for those teaching entrepreneurship as a standalone course in middle/high school.
What about certification?
Previously in the state of South Carolina, there was not a certification for teaching entrepreneurship. Now, any teacher in S.C. who holds a teaching license and successfully completes the four-day training session becomes “certified” to teach entrepreneurship. Teachers can earn a maximum of 26 contact hours by participating in the YEScarolina Teacher Training Program. Contact hours may be used only toward the renewal of a valid South Carolina teaching credential for active South Carolina professionals.
How do I find out about graduate credit?
Graduate credit is not currently available with this training.
Are accommodations or meals included?
