YES becomes the first Canadian charitable partner to run SAS’ training platform!


Amid the urgent call for Canadian youth to have professional skills for taking tech jobs that are among the most in demand in a COVID/post COVID world, YES partners with SAS Institute, a global leader in analytics software, to provide free learning pathways for young people to gain accreditations in SAS.

Through innovative software and services, SAS empowers and inspires companies around the world to transform data into intelligence. It was used by 92 of the top 100 companies on the 2018 Fortune 1000 and an increasing number of companies are now looking for individuals with SAS skills and experience, thus having SAS accreditations will be a valuable asset for young job seekers.

SAS has partnered with colleges and universities across Canada to integrate analytics into their curriculums. YES is delighted to be SAS’ first charitable partner to facilitate access to SAS’ free software. We look forward to working closely with SAS to empower youth to earn recognition for their knowledge, enhance their credibility as SAS professionals, expand networking opportunities, and increase their value to potential employers.
