BCC is the Manawatu/Whanganui regional co-ordinator for YES – the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme.
In YES, students set up a 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.
What’s in it for you?
If you’re a student, be sure to sign up for the scheme at school and get in there to build a business!
If you know something about business, sign up to be a mentor or coach. We always need more of them. And you can feel good about helping to grow tomorrow’s leaders today!
