Yes Project

Project Concept

The Project is an Empowering Africa Program that reaches out to young people and help equip them with the needed skills to become more independent as job innovators and not seekers. This is how the African GN (Growth Network) of AIESEC seeks to help elevate poverty.

Project Types

Formal  YES

The project team organises pre-seminars in universities and other tertiary schools around entrepreneurship issues to prepare them for the all inclusive Business plan Competition that sees a group immerging as the winning team. Awards are provided for this through corporate partnership or sponsorship.
We do these with the help of mentors and facilitators
in all our sessions.

Informal  YES

We select remote areas around the Accra environment to raise the youth amongst them and help them join vocational institutions to polish their talents to establish businesses that can earn them a living. This reduces the vices in such societies.
