Our events provide students with the most up-to-date knowledge and experiences in the field of sustainable innovation! Recognition events during the spring competition celebrate and reward teams for outstanding projects.
We kick off our YES season with the annual Fall Summit. Students from around the state gather for a day of team-building and interactive educational sessions led by local experts. Participants enjoy sharing project ideas and doing fun hands-on activities that help teams jump-start planning for their projects and spark excitement for the upcoming YES season!
YES workshops provide a unique learning experience with topics related to projects the students are pursuing. Experts share their knowledge and lead hands-on activities. Workshops often feature behind-the-scenes tours at a relevant organization or business.
Our virtual workshops are accessible to YES students statewide regardless of whether they are sitting together in a classroom or joining individually from home. Hosted on Zoom, all YES virtual events are recorded so that YES teams can watch them anytime. Similar to in-person workshops, virtual workshops tap into our network of experts who present and lead activities for topics related to projects the students are pursuing.
We close our YES season with the annual Spring Showcase. Students from around the state gather for a day of celebration and relationship building; students will not only be recognized for their accomplishments, but have the opportunity to meet other YES students, green career professionals and supporters.
