Young Entrepreneurs program:

The Youth Entrepreneurs Program (YEP!) targets 15-24 year old youth in which they are taught an entrepreneurial curriculum in school-club setting to learn professional development, entrepreneurial, business and financial skills. This club is designed to be hands-on and to encourage children to explore new ideas. 

During YEP! Club meetings, students are taught entrepreneurial, business, financial, and professional development skills. These skills are taught through games, community member interaction, hands-on activities, and small group discussions. As a culminating club project, students have the opportunity to start and run their own enterprises.
