Get Involved

Please tell us how you could contribute your experience, expertise, stories and more to help today’s students. YEA! students gain some of the most important knowledge and experience they need to succeed through their interactions with business professionals during the year. The time YEA! students spend with adults who encourage their futures is invaluable, and participants often report getting even more out of their participation than they put into it!

YEA! is held at a central location, Cabrini University in Radnor, every Wednesday from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, beginning in November and ending in May.
