The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme is a unique and exciting programme helping students develop knowledge in operating a small business, team building, relationship management, meeting procedures, record keeping, the legal requirements for running a business, and the process of reporting company performance. Its value is far-reaching, providing students with skills to equip them for life after school. The YES experience will add depth to a resume when seeking employment.

The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme teaches senior secondary school students to form and run their own company. Find out more...

Remember, YES is now open to ALL Years 12 and 13 students in the Waikato-King Country, regardless of whether they take part as a school.

YES Connect has been launched this year to include entrepreneurial Years 12 and 13 students not participating in the programme through school. More information is available at the information day on March 6.
