Volunteer mentors are crucial to the YBI approach. YBI members pair young entrepreneurs with a mentor with a complementary set of skills to help them grow their business. In many cases these relationships can last one year or more. All YBI mentors are dedicated volunteers from the local community who themselves understand the unique challenges of starting a business.
