Young Entrepreneurs Association

The Young Entrepreneurs Association was formed under the auspices of the Jamaica Employers’ Federation (JEF) in 2005 and is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization whose mandate is to support young people in business. Aimed at business owners 45 and under, YEA provides members an opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences and take advantage of peer mentorship as they grow their businesses.
