YES grew out of an initiative started by the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce back in the late 1970s and aims to inspire young people to discover their potential in business and in life.

In 2020 75 local business people volunteered their time to coach 310 college students for the two KickStart sessions.  Coaches tell us they were impressed with some of the students ideas and that they personally found the whole experience enjoyable and interesting.  Being involved with this event is a one off commitment of just 2 hours, this is a speed coach session where coaches listen to students’ business ideas and provide helpful, honest feedback.

There are other ways to help out throughout the year long program.  We need advisors, judges, sponsors and business mentors.
