Youth Entrepreneurship Program
The Youth Entrepreneurship Program is designed to encourage youth to explore entrepreneurship and consider self-employment as a viable career option. It promotes creativity and innovation in learning and provides opportunities for youth to experience personal growth by being actively engaged in their local communities.
The ultimate goal of our initiative is youth retention in their respective local communities.
As the majority of the programs are run in partnership with schools, there are no fees to participate in the youth programming, excluding the Youth Enterprise Camp.
This is a collaborative initiative of the Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation, the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Community Futures Development Corporation and the Prescott-Russell Community Futures Corporation.Community Futures is a community based non-profit organization that is dedicated to creating opportunities for entrepreneurship and the pursuit of economic growth.
