The Southern Gazette - - Editorial - BURIN PENIN­SULA YOUTH VEN­TURES MARYS­TOWN, N.L.

The Youth Ven­tures Pro­gram is back for sum­mer 2018. The pro­gram is seek­ing youth who are am­bi­tious and driven, and would like to turn their cre­ative pas­sions into prof­itable ven­tures.

Youth Ven­tures is a pro­gram de­signed for youth ages 12-29 to start-up, and man­age, their own busi­nesses. As a co­or­di­na­tor, I am re­spon­si­ble for pro­mot­ing the Youth Ven­tures Pro­gram, and for as­sist­ing those in­ter­ested in div­ing into the world of en­trepreneur­ship.

Ser­vices of­fered within the Youth Ven­tures Pro­gram in­clude help with idea gen­er­a­tion, busi­ness plan cre­ation, mar­ket­ing and pro­mo­tion, fi­nan­cial in­for­ma­tion as­sis­tance and fi­nan­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties, busi­ness coun­sel­ing, etc.

Why choose to be an en­tre­pre­neur? Start­ing your own busi­ness al­lows you to be your own boss. You gain the flex­i­bil­ity to choose the hours you work and de­velop rules that com­pli­ment you. As well, suc­cess­ful en­trepreneurs work jobs they love and make money while do­ing it.

Do you have an idea, hobby or pas­sion that you could po­ten­tially turn into a profit? Are you self-mo­ti­vated, driven and cre­ative? Do you want to be your own boss? If so, the Youth Ven­tures Pro­gram is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for you to be­come an en­tre­pre­neur this sum­mer.

If you are in­ter­ested in es­tab­lish­ing your own busi­ness, Youth Ven­tures can help. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion drop by the Com­mu­nity Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion, lo­cated on the sec­ond floor of the W.R Build­ing in Marys­town, or con­tact Vic­to­ria Sta­ple­ton at (709)-279-4540 or email at burin@youthven­turesnl.com or check out our web­site at www.youthven­turesnl.com.
