Who We Are


In October 2016, the organization was formed to promote literacy throughout Atlanta Metropolitan and Middle Georgia for youth in underserved communities founded by our CEO Sierra McGhee-Adams.  Throughout its tenure the organization has launched multiple literacy campaigns to aid in increasing the literacy rate by hosting a holiday community giveback which was inclusive with a literacy gift basket given to each youth with books, blankets, and hygiene products.  Later, the organization was formed known as The Children Enrichment Outreach Project, Inc. (The CEO Project, Inc.) in August 2018 in which outreach services was provided to implement personal and business models, so that each youth are prepared to become the leaders of tomorrow. We have serviced over 2k youth throughout the State of Georgia.

In December 2020, the organization filed to amend its name from The Children Enrichment Outreach Project, Inc. to Young Entrepreneur Scholars Academy, Inc. to be in alignment with the vision for the organization in which it was effective January 2021.
