Internet and Exchange Component of YIEP

Country: Turkey
Category: Educational Development Programs


The Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program (YIEP) is implemented by the Turkish Education Association and has provided support for the development of innovation and entrepreneurism among Turkish high school students since 2008. PH’s Internet and Exchange Component serves three functions.

First, the component provides a means of delivering additional content and new approaches that enhance the teaching of entrepreneurism in the classroom.

Second, the component establishes linkages between Turkish and American youth that allow them to explore how innovation, entrepreneurism, culture and their lives are similar and different in the two countries, enriching awareness and understanding.

Finally, the component provides opportunities for leading young entrepreneurs and their teachers to have in-person experiences in one another’s countries, further expanding connections and understanding.
