Learning about entrepreneurship is a key skill that all students should acquire. Young Founders School is a great place to start on this journey.

Words From Our Graduates

YFS took my whole weekend but it was worth it because I learnt things that would’ve taken weeks at school in just two days. This was such a unique and valuable opportunity as I was able to connect with new people, improve my public speaking and plan to make a change for a better future.
YFS has opened my eyes to a more hands-on, more realistic and creative approach to learning. There is little textbook information and allow students like me to take the initiative and step out of our comfort zone.
