Youth Entrepreneur Support
Market research has been completed, product designs have been finalized and students in the Powerplay and Surrey Board of Trade Youth Entrepreneur Program pitched their products to business leaders in February.
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.
