At YELP our mission is to educate the youth on public speaking and leadership skills. We strive to offer an educational experience for students while still making the program fun and exciting. Through our workshops, we plan to create strong leaders. We strive to provide access to education to all students and empower them to become our next generation of leaders. At YELP we work on progressing Goal 4, Quality Education, from the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
YELP hosts in person and virtual workshops and summits along with various international based projects. We educate students about vocational skills needed for the workplace in order to motivate them to break barriers and eventually help others in their own community.
