The Young Entrepreneur Leadership Launchpad (YELL) was founded by three Canadian entrepreneurs passionate about a development program that could reach high school students across the country. The YELL concept rests on the collective efforts of school district administrators, teachers, parents and business and community leaders.

The program is a hands-on, experiential accelerator for high school students interested in gaining knowledge and leadership experience in all areas of business and entrepreneurship. In addition, YELL helps students interact with like-minded individuals across the school system, helps to build a community based framework to enhance collaborative engagement and provides a learning and development structure to foster innovation and advancement for future generations.

YELL is a registered Canadian charity led by a passionate team of volunteers. We work with school districts to develop customized learning programs that may be integrated into existing credited business courses.  Mentors from the business community are brought into classrooms to discuss their experiences and best practices in all aspects of business ranging from corporate finance to social entrepreneurship. A level of sophistication is added through the use of Desire2Learn LeaP platform (formerly Knowillage), which enables seamless and transparent use of any content, while using cutting edge adaptive learning methodologies, allowing for a full personalized learning and maximum student engagement and results.
