Young Elites is an Executive MBA Program for High School Girls.

“Young Elites bears an extreme importance not only to me but also to the community as it helps cultivate young female leaders. In addition to the many leadership skills we’re taught at Young Elites, we are also taught the importance of collaboration and respect of others’ differences, thoughts, and ideas. I, along with other girls in the community, will carry the core values taught by Young Elites – excellence, leadership, initiative, tenacity, execution, and service – as we transition to college and beyond as leaders and strong female figures in our society.” Mackenzie Hanby, YE Alumni
