The mission of YEM is to inspire Ithaca’s future business leaders through a hands-on learning experience about entrepreneurship. YEM provides a discovery playground for local youth to bring their business ideas to fruition. The youth market flips the paradigm of the community focused festival model often celebrated in the Ithaca community, by empowering youth to be the vendors and adults the consumers. To help students prepare for the market, YEM provides multiple entrepreneurship workshops with local entrepreneurs sharing their inspiring success stories and business development coaching.
