Do you know someone between 14 and 30 years of age who are interested in developing their entrepreneurial skills or business idea? The Community iLab’s Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) offers a month-long, eight-session series of lessons aimed at developing entrepreneurial skills and business strategies beginning Nov. 1.

  • plans and executable business ideas
  • business modelling
  • the customer journey and identifying the customer
  • financial literacy
