The YEAH has a Steering Committee of research scientists and professors from 11 institutions and one professional society. The Committee oversees YEAH resources and conducts annual self-assessments. This Committee is dynamic and grows with the network to maintain a balanced membership of different institutional types.

YEAH Fellows are graduate or senior-level undergraduate students who act as mentors and peers to facilitate student teams participating in multitudinous virtual classrooms organized by the YEAH. Fellows are nominated by YEAH member institutions for periods ranging from a month to a year or more.
