‘Try not to become a person of success, but rather
No matter a student’s age, background, or experiences,
we believe that children have the power to change the world and to assist them in their journey, we are striving to empower the youth with the tools needed to become the next generation of innovators and changemakers. We believe that Positivity, Resourcefulness, Independence, Resilience and Endeavour are some of the most important character traits that children need to possess to become successful individuals. Our goal is to instil these qualities in our budding heroes by providing them with specialised enterprise education and enabling them to reach their full potential.
Today, the world is pacing forward by leaps and bounds. Opportunities are growing in the world of science and technology, engineering and mathematics, start-ups and young businesses. The challenge we are facing is that the current classroom education is falling behind in teaching students how to think entrepreneurially, identify the diverse societal needs, and create products and services that will satisfy those needs.
Our youth is our strength and if we want our budding innovators and leaders to really support this nation, we will have to make some fierce changes in enterprising education. That’s why we’ve developed free youth entrepreneurship programs that help our aspiring visionaries in transforming their ideas into realities.
We are a team of fun, hard-working entrepreneurs, youth leaders and educators who left their day jobs to create entrepreneurship programs for youth.
At YEP, we operate on a bold set of beliefs:
- Entrepreneurship is for everyone
- Potential is universal
- Failure creates opportunity
- Diversity powers innovation
- Empathy fuels collaboration
- Impractical is not impossible
- Learning is limitless
