The Applied Entrepreneurship Program (AEP) of the Academy for Creating Enterprise brings its entrepreneurship module right to the heart of the different stakes in the Philippines to reach out and teach more young returned missionaries and other faithful Latter-day Saints and help them achieve self-reliance. The program runs as follows:

A. Five Days of Classroom Training
B. Two Weeks of Guided Fieldworks
C. Two Additional days of Classroom Training and Graduation
D. Ongoing Support and Learning in Chapter Organizations


The Academy holds 3 AEP classes a month in different areas in the Philippines -Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao- with focus on impoverished areas where jobs rarely exist. Through its partnership with the Self-Reliance Centers the Academy staff can visit an area and hold a fireside to discuss the benefits of holding an AEP class in a specific stake.
