The Southern Gazette - - ARCHIVES -

The Youth Ven­tures Pro­gram is up and run­ning again for Sum­mer 2017. The pro­gram is aimed at youth, aged 12-29, who are in­ter­ested in self-em­ploy­ment and turn­ing their cre­ative ideas into prof­itable ven­tures.

Lesleeanne Lambe is co­or­di­na­tor for the pro­gram on the Burin Penin­sula.

She able to help young peo­ple de­velop ideas, write busi­ness plans, mar­ket and pro­mote their prod­uct or ser­vice, and pro­vide fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance in­for­ma­tion and busi­ness ad­vice.

“Be­com­ing an en­trepreneur al­lows you to be your own boss,” she says. “You gain flex­i­bil­ity by choos­ing your own work­ing hours, and de­velop rules and pro­ce­dures to com­pli­ment you. Also, suc­cess­ful en­trepreneurs work jobs they en­joy and make money while do­ing it.”

If you have an idea, hobby or in­ter­est you feel could po­ten­tially turn a profit, if you’re self- mo­ti­vated, cre­ative and am­bi­tious and would like to be your own boss, check out the Youth Ven­tures pro­gram.
