Our experiential class equips young people with the values and vision to pursue their dreams. We introduce the entrepreneurial skills and principles that change students’ mindsets so they believe in themselves and what they can accomplish. YE alumni leave the classroom prepared to overcome barriers and seize opportunities for good.
