One of the most fundamental measures of success in our program begins with our thorough and registration form and team selection process. From the minute our potential students begin providing us with information about themselves and their backgrounds, our team of professionally trained "Preneurology Facilitation Coaches" (PFC's) assigned to your child's cohort, will begin to review each student’s profile. The PFC's are able to form diverse teams by utilizing students’ applications, questionnaires and video pitches. After reviewing the profiles, the coaches then compare their own personal skills, strengths, and talents to determine which team is best for them to lead in order to create a transformational experience for our students. Our team selection process, design projects and agile competitions are meant to challenge the students to move beyond the comfort they are used to for optimized growth during our experience.
Our registration process consists of three simple steps:
Registration & Tuition Payment – STEP 1
Complete the registration form online and pay the full tuition fee in order to secure your child’s space. You may receive a refund of half tuition if you cancel before May 1st. You may also pay a partial tuition payment if you register by April 15th and satisfy the balance by May 1. There will be no refunds allowed on or after May 1st for Summer Sessions. If you have to cancel due to Covid-19 concerns your full tuition payment will become a credit that can be used for any of our future Virtual or Physical Experiences through Fall 2024. You will receive a voucher code to be used when registering for the future session with your credit.
Supplemental Forms – STEP 2
So now that you’ve registered we want to learn a little more about your child and where they are at this stage in their life to enhance their Youth IncYOUbator Experience, even if they are returning students. Once your child's registration is received your child’s space is secure and you will receive an email confirmation. Although your child’s space is secured, you or your child will still need to submit the youth questionnaire form that will provided via a link in your confirmation email. We ask that the form be filled out within 3 days of receiving your confirmation email or right away, if you are registering less then 3 days before your selected session start date.
Although we soft screen all registrations received, it is only to ensure that all students applying are willing and eager to be involved and committed on the road to becoming CEO of their future. This ensures that we are able to provide a truly engaging and transformational experience for all participants. Most registrations are accepted.Although rare, If for some reason your child's enrollment is rejected we will notify you within 1-3 business days and your full tuition amount will be returned to your original method of payment. Again, this is extremely rare, so you will not need to contact us to check on your child's status. If you have not received a rejection email your child's registration has been accepted.
Pre Session Information & Events – STEP 3
Good, you’re all set to go! You will receive an email invitation with a link to attend our mandatory Youth and Parent "Start Up You" day for the entire family via Live Webinar on May 1. You will also receive an electronic welcome packet with helpful information, schedules and more to prepare you and your child for their experience. If you are registering for Fall and Spring you will receive a recorded orientation to help you and your child prepare. You may request a one on one session with one of our enrollment team members if you have additional questions after viewing the recording.
You may be surprised to hear that our soft screen enrollment criteria is not based on test scores or GPA. Your child’s space is reserved the moment you apply. Although we do not have the typical requirements for accepting applications and we accept students on a first come rolling basis, we do want to ensure that all participants are there to become the CEO of their lives. Coaches and administrators screen each application and read each question. We seek willing, committed, and coachable youth participants who have aspirations, ambition, and expect great things for themselves – or students who really want to get to that place and can’t seem to find their voice to do so. We are not interested in what your child knows already, but what they have done or can DO with what they know, because we are building lifelong learners who are relentless problem solvers. What we focus on is your child’s future. Enrollment criteria is based on the willingness of the student to participate and the student’s commitment to discovering their passion and who they are in the world – hopefully leading to a greater sense of purpose. We are looking for students with open minds who are excited about joining our Youth IncYOUbator. Youth participants do not have to have a business idea or prior entrepreneurship experience to apply. We welcome those who are looking to build their self-confidence and discover their leadership capabilities for the first time as well – there certainly is a lot to gain from our experiences.
