YES Online

YES Online is an interactive tool for students and teachers to guide you through participation in YES. Here you can access YES online, including iQualify and Wufoo with resources to support you through your YES year, including information about the challenges, marking schemes and exemplars from previous YES businesses.

YES online


The role of a mentor is to act as a point of contact to offer advice, coach, teach, help you and your business throughout your Young Enterprise year and facilitate genuine connections to the Auckland Business community. Here you can chat and connect with our mentors or sign up to become one and lead a Young Enterprise team.
