AZYouthforce is excited to launch a brand-new entrepreneurship program, thanks to funding from a generous donor!

This internship is a great fit for teens who:

  • Want to start your own business
  • Think outside the box
  • Have no experience

Based on a Learn-to-Earn model, youth will:

  • Attend weekly Saturday sessions for six weeks
  • Be paid for your time in the program (after completing 20-30 hours of our Academy).
  • Be matched with a business mentor
    • The business mentor will help you prepare for the final stage of the internship, a pitch contest.
  • Pitch for seed money to start your own business.
  • The winner of the contest will receive $2,500!


  • Ages 16 - 19



Currently accepting applications!

Applications due December 31st.

Interviews will be held early January.

The Academy will start late January.
