Youth Entrepreneurship Camp Online

Learning and running a business is an important skill for anyone to have. During this three-week online program, participants will develop a business venture starting with an idea and creating a BUSINESS to sell a product. 

Participants will learn how to identify a problem, define a service audience, assess their competition, design a logo, and brand their company. This program is offered in collaboration with WeThrive.

The program runs from Monday, July 5th to Friday, July 23rd, 2021, from 10 am Eastern Time (EST) to 2:00 pm (EST) with a one-hour lunch break. The camp serves 13 to 16 years olds. 2021 registration is closed.

Program Overview 

We will discuss ideas and decide on the product or service their venture will focus on during week one. This is when participants will develop their branding, logo, identify their target audience and design a marketing strategy.

In week two, participants will search and secure suppliers with our sponsor's help, determine the price of their product, develop their MVP (minimal viable product), and draft their pitches, which will introduce their product or service to an audience.

In week three, participants will show their businesses to the community and learn how to run their companies/businesses after the program. During the last two days of camp, participants will introduce their project to an online audience and invite them to invest in their venture.

Twice a day, each group will meet with the instructor in live conversations, while the rest of the day, groups will be working among themselves on specific tasks.
