About The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme
The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme is a programme delivered at Years 12 and 13 for students to get the chance to set up and run their own business for a year. YES students will set up their company, create real products or services, compile and implement a business plan and make real profit or loss. For all students, the business knowledge they develop is supplemented by skills in teamwork, communication, problem solving, negotiation, and decision making.
Students learn through experiencing the value of innovative thinking and develop enterprising attributes.
