The YELL community is made up of amazing students, dedicated mentors, generous partners and trailblazing educators. Hear from them below:
YELL isn’t just an entrepreneurship class – it’s a class that teaches necessary life skills. I can honestly say that I gained more from YELL than I have from any other high school class.
No longer am I the shy and confused girl that walked into the program; instead, I am a young entrepreneur who’s prepared to ‘YELL’ for change.
YELL is a wonderful opportunity for students to connect to mentors in the community. The program helps take the theoretical of school, and make it practical. It has quickly become a marque program in our district.
The YELL program gave me something other classes couldn’t: experience. YELL gives you an opportunity to not only learn about entrepreneurship, but also try it out and see what it’s like hands on.
Every single week I think to myself “I wish I had something like this when I was younger. YELL should be mandatory to take in every high school in our country.”
YELL is a Registered Canadian Charity that relies on the generous financial support of our Partners to empower the next generation of leaders.
It takes a community to raise a generation of innovators, see some of our supporters below:
