Young Founders Institute (YFI) is an early-stage startup shaping the next generation of builders and innovators. YFI works with schools across the country to provide teen entrepreneurship programs with curriculum, workshops, club opportunities, and more. YFI also hosts a prestigious and selective entrepreneurship program for ambitious middle and high school students on UNC-Chapel Hill’s Campus and now remote. YFI’s programs are grounded in design thinking, lean startup, nail it then scale it, SPIN Selling, and a number of other entrepreneurial models teaching students how to create value through real-world experiences of company building. YFI was started by entrepreneurs from UNC and MIT to train the next generation of entrepreneurs.

The individual selected for this position will receive comprehensive training on our previous curricula, the culture we bring to teaching entrepreneurship, and the teaching tactics we have found most effective. You will be joining a high performing team that has tripled growth year over year and is poised for exponential growth for years to come. At YFI, we believe that entrepreneurship is the most powerful force for change. Join our team and help us shape the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Facilitate one hour to full-day workshops and learning sprints in both a remote and in-person capacity.
  • With the CEO, co-lead three two-week summer program sessions. Live on-site in Chapel Hill and manage the logistics and instruction of an immersive entrepreneurship experience.
  • Work with team to develop state-of-the-art curriculum and educational products
  • Continue to innovate with our team to build products and programs
  • Cultivate a love of entrepreneurship in teens

Requirements:

Bachelor’s degree | Entrepreneurial spirit | Educator Experience (at least 2 years of lead teaching experience) | Ability to work efficiently and effectively with minimal supervision | Organized, independent, and resourceful

Benefits:

  • Mission-driven organization (teen education)
  • Work in an organization at the cutting edge of the entrepreneurship process (our product is teaching this)
  • Learn from partners to craft new educational opportunities
  • Competitive salary based on experience
  • Full-time remote work (min 30 hrs per week)
