Tangible Skills

It's more than just hype and hope, WE help teach tangible(and valuable) skills that will allow our youth to have value in the workforce. Real skills add real value to their real life, and give them real control.

YEZ Labs

WE keep our fingers on the pulse of the community, thus we have been successful in understanding the dynamics and the needs of our community.  This has lead us to create some of the most unique, impactful and effective labs for not only giving our youth a place to engage and learn but to provide them with skills, creativity and training to lead the workforce, entrepreneurship & market innovation.

Here are some of The YEZ Labs.

Our kids need something different, something that empowers , encourages and gives them skills and pathways to own and control their future. The YEZ provides that!
