Purpose of Y.E.S. (Youth Entrepreneur Success) Education
The mission of our non-profit is to empower young people with entrepreneurship, leadership and life skills in our low income district where almost half of our high school students apply for free or reduced lunches.
Only 45% of high school students that live in our Ko’olauloa, O'ahu, Hawai'i district that graduate from high school plan to continue on to college. (Source: 2018 KHIS School Profile). Many of the students that do attend college dropout due to poor study skills and lack of funding.
Our amazing team of volunteers and donors are committed to helping others. We take our convictions and turn them into action.
Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in the Ko'olauloa district of O'ahu, Hawai'i, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing Ko'olauloa community!
We focus on making the maximum positive effort to empower our Ko'olauloa students and community. Our volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Using data-driven models, we provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference.
Even though we are based in Hawai'i, our projects can be done anywhere in the world.
Please help our projects and ideas get some traction by volunteering, collaborating, or making a donation. Thank you!
