What is YES?

YES stand for Young Entrepreneur Society. We are a California Nonprofit 501 (c)(3) that serves high schools on a weekly basis. Every week our team of volunteers hosts school clubs during lunch to bring students FREE lunch. We empower them by letting them now we get that college isn't for everyone but instead of going off into adult like without any life skills we bring in the basics. We focus on personal development, mindset, team building, budgeting, leadership, critical thinking, communication, sense of community, etc. We give hope and vision for these students and their future. 

Ultimately, we believe that YES can provide guidance and mentorship for the youth by helping them to find their purpose and vision.
