Are today's high school students prepared to become tomorrow's business leaders? Young Entrepreneurs Business Week (YEBW), a 501c3 nonprofit, educates and inspires the next generation...
What we do
We invest in Oregon youth, the future workforce and our local economy.
Our reach and impact are profound; as we serve, mentor and empower hundreds of high school students
from more than 25 Oregon counties statewide each year...
HOW WE DO IT
We encourage young people to explore business through hands-on experiential learning. Students run their own mock companies and develop original product ideas into business plans—with guidance and coaching from real entrepreneurs, executives and educators.
Beyond business, students participate in interactive activities, teambuilding exercises, inspiring seminars and more events designed to inspire professional growth and skills they can leverage for life.
