The Young Founders Program


Founded on The Darrow School campus, The Modern Business School of New York provides innovative programming to visionary high school students so that they can build and lead ethical businesses or enhance their business acumen. MBSNY is separate but governed by Darrow.

MBSNY facilitates three unique programs for high school-aged students:

 

Young Innovators (YIn)

Young Innovators is an accelerated Gap Year program that instills an innovation mindset in remarkable high school graduates. Through hands-on experiences across the innovation design process, Young Innovators learn to adapt and apply frameworks and tools utilized by the planet’s most forward-thinking organizations. Our expert faculty also introduce Young Innovators to concepts like designing for scale and sustainability-driven innovation. We facilitate this unique Gap Year program over seven months, to include a 4-month residency on our New York campus. Ideal candidates anticipate matriculating to college after their Gap Year and pursuing careers that demand an innovation mindset and skillset. We select Young Innovators from diverse states, countries, backgrounds, and life experiences to ensure a high-impact learning environment.

 

Young Founders (YFP)

Young Founders Program is an intensive yearlong residential certificate program that equips visionary high school graduates with the entrepreneurial competencies to successfully design, launch, and lead ethical businesses. Ideal candidates are interested in entrepreneurial careers, social entrepreneurship and/or business ownership and management. We select participants from diverse states, countries, backgrounds, and life experiences to ensure a high-impact learning environment.

 

Young Founders Program Foundations (YFPF)

Young Founders Program Foundations is a blended 4-week residential and online certificate program that equips current high school students with the foundational entrepreneurial competencies to one day design, launch, and lead ethical businesses. YFPF is designed for rising 11th and 12th Grade students. Ideal candidates are interested in entrepreneurial careers, social entrepreneurship and/or business ownership and management. We select participants from diverse states, countries, backgrounds, and life experiences to ensure a high-impact learning environment.
