Winter 2022 Session Schedule
There are 8 sessions for the age group 15-30 and they are held online every Tuesday and Wednesday starting on March 1, 2022.
The popularity of the program is growing and for the upcoming session, we have a waitlist of youth who wish to take part in our YEP program but do not have the financial means to pay the program fee of $300. To support ALL youth in our community who aspire to become entrepreneurs, we are looking to community supporters and donors to sponsor a youth in financial need to be able to attend the program. Your support of $300 will guarantee a spot in the next YEP session for a waitlisted participant in financial need.
You can sponsor as many participants as you would like.
