Teacher Assisting a Student


The YES (Young Entrepreneurs Succeed) Program was established to train young people from historically underserved and marginalized communities to become successful entrepreneurs. In doing so, we believe we can instill the mindset, skills, and values needed for the youth that participate in our program to become the next generation of business leaders that serve their community. The program is offered 100% free for students grades 7 to 12 from historically underserved communities.
