Minority Youth and Business Program Launches Entrepreneur Camp
MYB Program expanded its program with a one-day camp for youth aspiring to leap into entrepreneurship. On Saturday, November 19, 2016, the Minority Youth and Business Program hosted seven high school juniors and seniors from local and surrounding high schools for an Entrepreneur Camp on Georgia College’s campus. Early College seniors and juniors proudly participated in this opportunity.
Entrepreneur Camp 2016 was a day filled with entrepreneurial development as students spent the day experiencing interactive sessions that included grant writing, leadership training, and entrepreneurial marketing and accounting. The day was completed by Richard Hicks, the Director of Technology Operations at PowerMyLearning, speaking to the students.
The inaugural theme is “Pursuing Entrepreneurship through Education”, which compliments the mission to inspire leadership, teach the basics of entrepreneurship, highlight an entrepreneurs impact on their community, and explore resources and pathways for entrepreneurs. The Entrepreneur Camp is an expansion of a weeklong summer program hosted by MYB, where more than 20 students from in and out-of-state spend the week on Georgia College’s campus and develop business plans for new and unique businesses. This summer camp will be free to all participants and will provide meals and materials for the day.
