YEBW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to building the next generation of business leaders. Our unique business and leadership programs aid in strengthening the future of Oregon and its high school student participants by producing week-long, hands-on learning experiences at the University of Portland (UP), University of Oregon (UO), and Oregon State University (OSU) campuses.
YEBW participants spend one week on a college campus and are exposed to a challenging curriculum designed to teach students that business can be fun and exciting. During the programs, students are broken up into student-led companies, each of which is guided by a loaned executive from the business community who shares his or her knowledge and expertise throughout the week. The curriculum provides students with the financial literacy, business fundamentals, and confidence that they need to be self-sufficient and successful, thus priming the pipeline for the next generation of business and community leaders.
