Programs that educate and inspire students.

We set out to create the course we wished we had when we were in high school and continue to develop programs so youth receive relevant educational experiences that evolve with the times.

YELL Entrepreneurship 12

Full year program designed for students in Grades 10-12

Students will receive a grade towards high school graduation and those in good standing will also be eligible to receive credit from partnered post-secondary institutions.


Accelerated Learning

The YELL Entrepreneurship 12 program begins with students learning all the core concepts of lean entrepreneurship. YELL teachers cover topics including: design thinking, resiliency training, marketing, financial projections, Business Model Canvas, and more! A diverse selection of inspiring entrepreneurs and business leaders visit classes throughout the semester to share stories and advice to our budding innovators.


Industry Exploration

Local companies and maker labs participate in our YELL program so students can experience the world beyond the classroom and explore different career options. They learn about new technologies, tour unique office spaces and hear from industry professionals.


Business Incubator

YELL students form groups, create a business venture together, identify and test assumptions, pivot businesses if necessary, and ultimately prove and validate their concept. Students learn to problem solve together and communicate effectively with their mentor who acts as their guide and a liaison between the team and the broader entrepreneurship community.


Venture Challenge

To wrap up the YELL program, classes across the province come together at our annual Venture Challenge. Student teams compete and present their business venture to a panel of judges made up of community members, entrepreneurs and investors. Think of the Venture Challenge as a Dragon’s Den type of experience!
