Supporting young people to have the confidence to become whatever they want to be
We are passionate about supporting young people to have the confidence to become whatever they want to be. In doing so we are living our life purpose and have become exactly who we wanted to be. Our ambition is to create innovative solutions to youth unemployment.
Cherie Topfer founded YEP Careers in 2018. In 2021, Tegan Swan joined Cherie as a Director in the company. They combined their experience and continued to grow the impact and reach of YEP Careers.
Cherie brings experience in HR and training services, as well as leading an Education Queensland Industry Partnership program. Tegan brings a background in education and community development, events, communications and marketing, as well as a passion for supporting more diversity in organisational and social leadership.
With the support of partners, our aim is to roll out our youth entrepreneur program, YEP11 across regional Australia and to have job readiness resource, My Career Passport, in the hands of everyone aged 15-24.
Our vision is to inspire the next generation of leaders to make an impact while making an income.
