Our Mission:

YEP! is an entirely free entrepreneurship program for local high school students in New Haven. By inviting local students on campus to participate in an entrepreneurship incubator, YEP! hopes to develop the next generation of entrepreneurs and strengthen town-gown relations.

Our Activities:

Young Entrepreneur's Program (Yale Chapter)
Direct Service
We host local New Haven high school students twice a week to instill them with entrepreneurial skill sets and to develop their own business models through an intensive incubator.

Young Entrepreneurs Program (YEP!)
Direct Service
The YEP! Incubator is a free, semester-long program for New Haven high school students hosted by Yale students. Through weekly guest speakers, workshops, and Yale student mentors, YEP! high school students will learn how to apply the entrepreneurial mindset to solve problems that matter to them and their community! At the end of the program, every student will be able to pitch their idea to a panel of judges. No entrepreneurship experience is required or expected — We are hoping to find high school students from all different backgrounds and interests!
