HOW TO APPLY:
One of the most fundamental measures of success in our program begins with our thorough and comprehensive application and team selection process. From the minute our potential students begin providing us with information about themselves and their backgrounds, our team of professional certified CEO of My Life coaches begins to review each student’s profile. The coaches 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 grow beyond the comfort they are used to.
Our application process consists of three steps:
Registration & Tuition Payment – STEP 1
Complete the enrollment form online and pay the tuition fee in order to secure your child’s space.
Supplemental Forms – STEP 2
So now that you’ve enrolled we want to learn a little more about you, your child and what you would like your child to gain from the Youth IncYOUbator Experience. Once your registration is received your child’s space is reserved and you will receive an email confirmation. Although your child’s space is reserved, you will still need to submit a parent and youth questionnaire form that will be sent to you via email within 5 days of submitting your registration form. You will have until May 1st to submit the Parent and Youth questionnaire form.
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 lives. This ensures that we are able to provide a truly engaging and transformational experience for all participants. Most applications are accepted. 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.
Information & Events – STEP 3
Good, you’re all set to go! On May 15th you will receive an invitation to attend our mandatory parent and student Start Up Day a short and fun orientation day for Youth IncYOUbator families. Start Up Day's are typically held the Saturday before the session begins whether it’s Summer, Fall, or Spring semester. You will receive an electronic welcome packet via email 4 weeks before your session start date with helpful information to prepare you for your experience. See you soon!
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.
