Young Professionals Empowered

Young Professionals Empowered (YPE) is our professional development program for youth and young adults ages 14-24.  YPE guides youth to pursue their interests, make positive career decisions; and cultivate work-relevant skills, knowledge, and opportunities.

The YPE program combines dynamic on-the-job learning with applied work-based learning for a well-rounded experience.   Participants attend professional development opportunities and engage in a work-based learning experience, either as an intern and/or as an entrepreneur creating their own businesses.
