They have been learn­ing to earn and man­age money with Pow­er­play Young En­trepreneur­s, an ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing pro­gram that helps youth plan and im­ple­ment their own small busi­ness ven­tures.

Spon­sored by the Sur­rey Board of Trade as part of its Youth En­trepreneur­ship and

Ad­vo­cacy Ac­tion Plan (YEAAP), Pow­er­play Young En­trepreneur­s em­pow­ers young peo­ple to make in­formed fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions as they work through the busi­ness plan­ning process. “The pro­gram pro­vides a real-world plat­form for young peo­ple to stretch their abil­i­ties and build im­por­tant prac­ti­cal life skills,” says pro­gram cre­ator Bill Roche.

ASK: Spon­sor­ship is needed to ex­pand this pro­gram to more youth.
