EMPOWERING, INSPIRING AND EDUCATING THE ENTREPRENEURS OF TODAY AND TOMORROW.
The YEC, an invite-only nonprofit membership organization, promotes entrepreneurship as a means to overcome youth unemployment and underemployment. Our mission is to spark an entrepreneurial revolution in America—and help rebuild the economy in the process. Today, with 1 out of 2 new college graduates unemployed or underemployed, young Americans must find a new way forward. To that end, the YEC seeks to put the tools and resources aspiring young entrepreneurs need directly in their hands, so they are empowered to create thousands of new businesses (and jobs).
YEC network members are the young media personalities, thought leaders, and founders behind some of the world’s most successful companies and nonprofits whose lives were changed by entrepreneurship.
