The mission of the Sangamon Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities (CEO) class is to give young people tools and encouragement to return to their hometowns to:
- Run businesses
- Start families
- Create jobs
- Give back to the community
Funded entirely by individuals and businesses, the year-long CEO class creates a real-world learning laboratory for high school seniors to take risks, manage opportunities and learn from outcomes. Through entrepreneurship education, students learn how to create a business - and so much more.
