Teaching entrepreneurship early and giving students multiple opportunities to practice, test, fail, and succeed – both in and out of the classroom – is critical in preparing the next generation for the challenges of the marketplace. This is important, even for students who don't wish to start their own businesses. Entrepreneurship training helps those students build the mindset and skills for career success, including:

  • improved academic performance and school attendance
  • better problem-solving and decision-making skills
  • stronger relationship building and communication skills
  • higher degrees of self-esteem
  • increased creativity and innovation
  • better job readiness

Until now, educators had very few options for finding resources devoted to building these vital skills. YIPPEE is changing that. A program of Burton D. Morgan Foundation, YIPPEE is breaking new ground with its innovative marketplace platform that works with sponsors to put quality entrepreneurship education resources in the hands of K-12 educators at no cost. To date, more than 700 teachers in 34 states have taken advantage of all YIPPEE has to offer their students.
