Why you? 

Three key things we look for in Advisors: Enjoy working with youth, embody a passion for business; and exemplify appropriate professionalism and experience.

Advisors are typically mid-level or senior-level managers, executives, small business owners or independent agents. This role is ideal for professionals who possess strong leadership, communication and teambuilding skills. Beyond business savvy, YEBW values enthusiasm, discretion, patience, compassion and an inclusive disposition.


Why YEBW?

Launched for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs in 2006, YEBW has always been a volunteer-led program... Business community leaders are key to YEBW's growth and our ability to serve more students in the years to come.

“It will be something you’ll remember forever! You don’t need to have all the answers for the kids, instead you just need to know when to push them and keep them thinking about another way to approach their work. I really learned a ton with my one week as an Advisor and I would recommend YEBW to anyone who is looking to give back to the community and wanting to learn more themselves.”
