The St.George Foundation have thrown their support behind the Academy for Young Entrepreneurs ensuring that children, schools and communities across Australia can start something entrepreneurial, educational and life-changing.

The Academy for Young Entrepreneurs (AYE) enables primary school students (typically 10 to 12 years of age) to develop financial and business literacy skills, and conceive and run their own micro-businesses. Profits from the micro-businesses assist children in developing nations to overcome poverty through education and means of support.

In addition to seed funding for national development, St.George Foundation, BankSA & Staff Charitable Fund and Bank of Melbourne Neighbourhood Fund will provide partnership funding for 10 community organisations and/or schools to deliver AYE in their local community.

The partnership funding will cover the annual license fee of $2,500 and link the organisation and/or school directly with their local St. George, Bank SA or Bank of Melbourne branch for mentoring and program support.
