When you walk into a YES Hub, you walk into a new future.

YES Hubs connect youth and the community to global best practice in training and technology, specially located and designed to address barriers to youth employment and economic inclusion.

A range of activities takes place at a YES Hub, enabling innovation and a cross-pollination of ideas, seeding points for new business. Youth energy coupled with networks, market access and industry inputs are the right mix of ingredients for small business development to thrive.

Participants who register at the Hub are offered access to networks, training, markets, work opportunities, ideas for careers or new businesses, and the necessary partner support to make it happen. Small business is a generator for jobs, which is why YES Hubs work to attract the magic cocktail of ideas and resources to encourage, nurture and support small business.

Together with like-minded partners and corporate funders, Hubs deliver a host of programmes that include a basket of digital courses, textile manufacturing centres, ceramics labs, creative agencies, small business support centres, drone programming, culinary academies, beauty therapy, biodegradable sanitary pad production, 3D printing labs, and urban farming (to name but a few). Exciting programmes are being planned and added regularly.

Our communities are home to thousands of potential entrepreneurs and self-starters who just need that first chance to unlock their potential through support programmes, training and connections to markets and business.
