Young Enterprise mentors wantedWe are keen to hear from alumni interested in mentoring students in the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES).
Skills in Marketing, Application Development, Product Manufacturing, Business Development, or Finance would be valuable. To be a successful mentor, you will also have a passion for both business and youth development.
Our students have demonstrated outstanding capability in this competition. In 2012, Caring and Co won the awards for National Company of the Year and Managing Director of the Year. The Ohu honey company, with team members pictured, won awards for Excellence in Social Enterprise and Excellence for Global Sales and Marketing in 2013.
YES students set up their company, create real products or services, compile and implement a business plan and make real profit or loss. For all students, the business knowledge they develop is supplemented by skills in teamwork, communication, problem solving, negotiation, and decision making. Students learn through experiencing the value of innovative thinking and develop enterprising attributes. YES is an incredible learning experience that thousands of students participate in each year.
