A Child's Future Starts With A Dream

Teaching and Mentoring Children of All Ages About How Business Works



Young Entrepreneur Squad Foundation, a 501(3)c, was incorporated in 2016. Founded by Mary Evans, a long-time Michigan Business woman who was inspired by her grandson Amari's interest in the family business, and his own experience with running a lemonade stand his grandmother Mary helped him to set up.


On May 22, 2016, Amari's lemonade stand made $120 in 6 hours. Amari was hooked on business and became fascinated how you could make money selling folks something they wanted and liked. He never stopped asking his grandmother questions about how business works.


Mary was so inspired by Amari's interest she was moved to share what she was teaching and explaining to Amari with other children in the community. -That is why YES - The Young Entrepreneur Squad - was founded.

Our Mission:

The YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR'S SQUAD FOUNDATION provides mentoring, coaching, workforce  development,  entrepreneurial  training, technical  assistance, technical support equipment, and human services to youth,

their parents or guardians and schools and universities.

Hello I'm Amari Gee,

I am the president of Young Entrepreneur Squad, a for-profit business that my grandmother Mary Evans helped me start. My business sells YES t-shirts and I create other products that I sell at special events put on by the 501(3)c Nonprofit Organization Young Entrepreneur Squad Foundation.

Y.E.S. was started by my grandmother and she tells me it was all inspired by me. But I think she just wants to help all kids better understand business and that makes me happy.

I want to be the first to welcome you to the Young Entrepreneur's Squad Foundation's new website. 

Every child deserves a BRIGHT future! The Young Entrepreneur's Squad Foundation

    Meet Amari    

will provide mentoring opportunities, coaching, workforce development, entrepreneurial training, technical assistance, technical support and human services to kids between the ages of 6 -10  years old - just like me.

Each child will be assigned a mentor and guidance counselor to assist them in the program and will be provided information according to their needs. All programs are open to individuals in the community.
