WHY DO THIS

The Youth Business Connector (YBC) helps young people achieve their goals by connecting them with local employers to receive real-world experiences.

As a community, we understand the importance of partnering with local businesses to provide workplace experiences and how it positively impacts the future of our youth. This not only adds value to students, but also to your business!
