Description

Youths Enterprise Development and Innovation Society (YEDIS) is a non-governmental organization in Nigeria. YEDIS promotes entrepreneurship education, youth employment, and community development. The organization introduces youths to enterprises, encourages innovation, and inspires young people to pursue their entrepreneurial ambitions and develop the critical business skills that the employer desires. YEDIS primarily operates in underserved communities where there is a lack of quality education and decent jobs due to poor awareness, inadequate educational facilities, unemployment, and primitive agricultural sources of livelihood, chiefly among girls and young women.

YEDIS promotes local business initiatives through empowerment, education, and entrepreneurship training for economic and sustainable development. It provides a range of services and events designed to help youth develop new ideas, find support to make them realistic, set up their enterprises, have exposure to various sources of finances, and provide them with insights into the world of work.
