Local, young entrepreneurs looking to hone their business skills can still land a spot in the YELL (Young Entrepreneur Leadership Launchpad) program.
The program is a hands-on, experiential accelerator for high school students interested in gaining knowledge and leadership experience in all areas of business and entrepreneurship.
YELL brings mentors from the business community into classrooms to discuss their experience and best practices in all aspects of business ranging from corporate finance to social entrepreneurship.
The unique educational experience helps participants develop a broader understanding of the challenges business leaders face, the many dimensions of the business world, and the impact they can have on their community and the world through business leadership.
For more information about the program and to apply, visit weyell.org.
