Now in its fourth year, the program has helped more than 147 students gain entrepreneurial experience by providing start-up funding and training opportunities. Students start by completing a small business plan application, and eligible applicants can earn $150 in start-up funds for their business. Throughout the program, youth can attend workshops and earn bonus cash for every workshop and deliverable they hand in, up to an extra $150. To close the program, youth submit their final business evaluation for an additional $150. In total, youth have the potential to earn up to $450 for their summer business, plus their own profits. Applications will be accepted until Friday, May 5, with successful applicants being notified by Friday, May 26.
