Yellow Cowries leverages the YC clubs’ platform to drive mentorship programmes for students in public schools. This is an opportunity to continuously interact with students to instil sound values from a young age – Academics, Career and Finance. Yellow Cowries partners with staff of reputable organisations, especially financial institutions as facilitators at the mentorship sessions. These mentees can also move on to become financial literacy ambassadors.
