Youth Achieving Success (YAS) is a non-profit organization which helps local high school students better understand the various career paths available to them and develop professional connections.

Youth Achieving Success helps students explore their career potential, broaden their career options, and engage with industry experts from all walks of life. Whether you aspire to win the next Nobel Peace prize, work on Wall Street, or launch a start-up, YAS will provide you with the necessary guidance to set you on your path.

Each year, we host our signature YAS Career Conference where we bring together industry leaders from various fascinating industries and high school students who are trying to either figure out what they want to do in the future or develop some connections to help them on their path. Since our founding, we have helped over 600 students realize their career potential.


YAS exposes students to a diverse variety of careers—some they may have never considered.                        


YAS engages attendees through our panel of industry leaders, all of which are keen to help students succeed.


YAS inspires youth to realize their career potential and pursue their passion.                                                


Thank you to everyone involved in making the YAS 2019 conference a success. Thank you to the speakers, thank you to SFU, thank you to the ambassadors. But most of all, thank you to all the attendees who took time out of their Easter weekend to learn. You truly are, youths achieving success.
